Rustic Chalkboard Shelf

6:00:00 AM

I began this project with a broken drawer
from an antique toolbox that I had once made into a 

Rustic Chalkboard Shelf

The garden lasted the season but was on it's last legs when I repurposed the repurpose. 

The front of the drawer was still in good shape so I sanded it down and cut it to the size of the chalkboard I had on hand.  You can see that I saved the original drawer handles.... 

Maybe a good place to hang keys?

I cut reclaimed wood for the sides of the chalkboard and one for the shelf. The whole thing is mounted to a 1x10" and hung from a rusty chain.

The chalkboard is rustic, repurposed, and reused and 
perfect for someone's farmhouse kitchen.
