For my friend's birthday I thought it would be fun to give her a gift that keeps on giving.
I put together a chalkboard for her and made her this birthday card.
I found this great frame at Goodwill. I liked the wood grain of it so I sanded it a little to distress it and called it good. I popped out the glass and print that was in it.
I went to Home Depot with an intention to buy and mdf board and paint it with chalkboard paint. But, when I got there, what to my wondering eyes did appear? Chalkboard mdf. Shut up! It was 1/4 inch thick and 2' x 4'. The nice guy at Home Depot cut three 16 x 20 pieces for me from the sheet. SCORE!
For her birthday I drew a birthday design. I will update it monthly for holidays, other birthdays, quotes or whatever she chooses.
A couple of weeks later she was getting ready for her daughter's birthday so I drew this one:
I'll keep you posted as we go through the year. I'm making one for myself as well!
