Hi everyone! There are myriads of chalkboard projects out there. After all, just about anything can be painted with chalkboard paint–metal, plastic, wood, and more. I’ve seen a lot of quirky projects out there, some that work, and some that don’t. I’ve got a project today that I’m not completely sure about. You’ll have to let me know what you think. Over the week-end, I attended several garage sales and at one I bought an old griddle for twenty-five cents. Why? You may ask.
Well, when I saw it, I immediately thought chalk board. Sometimes that’s just how inspiration hits, right? You’re standing there minding your own business and boom. An idea hits you. Again, sometimes good, sometimes not-so-good.
Then I decided to attach a Scrabble tile-holder to act as a chalk-holder (thanks Dianne at Deanie’s Stash for the great idea!). Before attaching, I gave it a coat of medium stain.
However, the handle on this particular griddle does not make it condusive to hanging. So if I don’t want it sticking out oddly from the wall, I’ll have to hang it with a traditional plate hanger. (You know, the metal thingy with the springs.) Or, it could simply lean against the wall on a shelf or cupboard.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
