I have been wanting to make a chalkboard for awhile. I finally decided to take and old picture frame under my bed and turn it into the chalkboard I've been wanting. I painted the frame using milk paint in the color galvanized. I sanded it down to distress it and finished it off with a clear paste wax. My husband painted the board behind it with chalkboard paint and even created the message design on the board. His skills with font are much better than mine, I must say!
The pallet shelf was put together by my husband. We had a hole in our bathroom wall, so we needed something to cover up that spot. For this piece, I painted it in milk paint creamy. We added rusty knobs we found in a very old house that used to be on the property of my husband's family. I'm glad we were able to snag them before the house was torn down. They are perfect for this piece. This was our first pallet creation, and I'm really excited about doing more projects with pallets.
