How to Turn an Old Door into a Chalkboard

This old door was once a desk in our office.

And now... 

it is a chalkboard in someone's kitchen because it sold in a day.

I painted the door with a pretty off white color then painted the top panel with several coats of chalkboard paint.

I left on the original backing plate but added a mercury glass knob as a faux doorknob.

Lean it up against the wall in the kitchen or entry and leave notes and reminders for the family. 

Add hooks on either side to hang keys, leashes, whatever....

  2. Perfect! I love that you left the finishing touches up to the person who buys it and takes it home to love. So many ways it could be finished up.
