How to Recycle an Old Chalkboard

This chalkboard started out life as a children's easel, the chalk board finish was ruined and it was ready for the dump. 

found on the side of the road, cut off the legs, flipped it over and added a Scrabble shelf for chalk.

The chalkboard now hangs from an old window chain.

I painted the frame with chalk paint and the chalkboard
with new chalkboard paint. 

Another item thankfully saved from the dump!

The chalkboard found a new home in our girls' bathroom.

See the driftwood towel holder here.

  1. Great rescue, Susan! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  2. Hey, did something besides the chalkboard get a makeover around here?


  3. Wonderful. And how can chalkboard ever be ruined? Just slap another coat on top. Now tell me does the sign keep the towels off the floor? If so I am all over that in our kids bath. :)
