How I Made a Chalkboard From Vintage Shoe Forms

This pair of children's vintage wooden shoe forms was adorable and needed a new life.

I found a similar idea on Pinterest  for sale, the adult sized shoe forms were turned into an ipad stand... adorable!

So why not do the same for a chalkboard? 

This was a simple DIY... I just used a hand saw to cut a channel in the top of each shoe form and using E6000 I attached a vintage green chalkboard into the slot.

I added a clothespin to the top to hold photos, receipts, or notes.

And that was it! 

A simple DIY that gives these adorable little shoe forms a functional use while still keeping their original vintage character.

  1. I picked up four shoe forms over summer at a garage sale. They are in a drawer waiting for an idea.
