Repurposed Architectural Chalkboards

How great were these old table legs...??

Very cool but not as cool as they are now...


This chalkboard has great legs!

I built a shelf for the top then painted the piece Pure White with Annie Sloan Chalk paint.  

 I gave the whole piece a color wash with French Linen.

You can do a color wash with a dry brush and a spray bottle of water. Dry brush your top coat lightly then squirt it with 
water and wipe it off. Keep doing this and rubbing off the 
top coat until you've reached the look you like.

I love the Restoration look I got with this paint treatment!

I added a piece of trim to the top and a ledge for chalk.
The chalkboard was a pre-made chalkboard cut to size and glued in place. 

Two old cup hooks hold keys or in this case a porcelain house number.

The chalkboard stands on it's own or hangs on the wall 
using 2 D hooks attached to the back.

And because I had 2 sets of legs, meet twin sister... 
Goldie...she's the gold glitzy sister.

I used Graphite paint with a gold accent of Gilding Wax.

An upside down gold drawer pull holds the chalk.

I think they'll look fantastic in someone's kitchen 
or entry way!

  4. That's a definite golf medalist! I love the first one best as I am in my "light" mood/mode right now. Love the color and they are both ingenious!

  5. You really out did yourself Susan. This is just marvelous! I feel like it belongs in a Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs catalog. =)

  6. The first one really does look like RH~they should be so lucky to have your designs! I have to say that I think they're the nicest chalkboards I've ever seen, not joking! I love them! I've made a few in my day, but none as nice as this.
