Unfortunately I totally spaced taking a before picture. (which isn't the first time I've done that). But while on the prowl at D.I. I came across this unfinished wood product. It was already painted with chalkboard paint in the middle... Ideas were already running through my mind!
I have seen SO many cute things on pinterest involving chalkboards. So a few coats of paint later... And a little be-dazzling here and there here is the final outcome!
