Chalkboard Message Center with Faucet Hooks6:00:00 AM
This project started out as a side of the road find...
At first glance, 50 mph I thought it was a TV but at
the last minute I realized it was wood and kinda cool!
After a quick U turn in the middle of the road... it was mine.
I'm all about putting people in need of money to work so
I hired my 22 year old daughter to do the painting this time.
I'm up to my eyeballs in projects and she needs the money!
Ky gave the frame 2 coats of Old Ochre Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
then clear wax for protection.
She did a great job but when the piece was finished I decided I didn't like the shelf... there was no bottom to the piece
so hanging it on the wall wouldn't work.
I removed the ledge and the top arched piece from the shelf.
I re-attached the arched piece to cover the holes in the frame then
added 3 faucet handles to the front to work as hooks.
The faucet handles are raised up by attaching them
to large nuts before attaching them to the frame.
There was already a backing piece inside the frame when I found it so I gave the wood a couple of coats of spray chalkboard paint
and stuck it back inside the frame.
This extra large chalkboard message center
is perfect for an entry way to keep track of your
day and to hang leashes and keys.
I'm thankful for the help and I'm glad
I stopped for this treasure!
