Vintage Drawer Chalkboard

I'm thanking my friend Linda 
today who handed off this antique drawer she found...

This is a simple and inexpensive project that anyone can do...

Linda has a Facebook page called 
check out her beautiful Shabby Chic decor!

I wanted to create a rustic chalkboard quickly and easily
with just a few parts I had at home.

I painted the inside with Graphite Annie Sloan
Chalk Paint which makes great chalkboard paint when
you use several coats.

I added a metal number tag & a stained Scrabble rack for the chalk.

On the top I drilled two holes 
 for a thick piece of jute to hang the chalkboard.

I recently found a huge roll of macrame jute at a garage
sale for $1.00... 
I think I'm set for life in the jute rope department.

And that's it.

Thanks so much Linda... I love it!
