Gina over at The Shabby Chic Cottage is having a fantabulous Chalkboard Party!!! How FUN :)
This is the chalkboard in our school room. The story is: my dad found four great chalkboards leaning against a dumpster right outside a local bakery. They were changing their displays and were just going to throw them out! Yikes! He gave this one to me.
I wiped it down and proceeded to hand paint several little whimsical designs on the borders, right on the wood. I did this last year before I began blogging so I didn't even think to document the process. :(
