Vintage Drawer Chalkboard

How to make a chalkboard from an old drawer. 

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

I wanted to create a rustic chalkboard quickly and easily
with just a few parts you may already have 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.
