Sew Time! Chalk Board

I found this from a thrift store !
BEFORE

When I bought it, it did not have chalk board paint on the bottom, it had disappeared??  That must be why it was not wanted??  I wanted it!!
 I wanted to try doing a chalk board so this piece looked perfect.  See what you think?


AFTER








                                         
I found by putting 4 coats of chalk board paint and waiting the 3 days before using, did work!
and adding a magnetic top finished it for me!
Beware:  After using this paint, you start looking everywhere to USE IT!

                                Now I must list my sewing
                                    projects and get going!

Too cute! That was a great rescue. Yeah, I'd have looked at it and wondered what I could do with it then walked away because I'd have gone blank. As usual.
