Repurposed Chalkboard Memo Stand

      I'm using what I have in the junk pile today to create a 
chalkboard memo stand.

This tree slice cutting board was in the donation pile but I pulled it out to use it for a new project.
The first thing I did was to find a dowel that was the right size to fit into the stand.

The one I found was the wrung of an old chair. 
The stand I'm using was the candle holder leftover from this project.
I glued the stand to the base with E6000 glue.

I attached the cutting board to the dowel using a few random pieces from my junk supply. 
Here's the back:

I attached a small piece of Scrabble tray with hot glue to the front to hold chalk.

I painted the entire piece with black chalkboard paint then added a hook to the top of the board to hold notes or photos.

This unique piece can sit on your desk or on the kitchen counter to hold notes and write little reminders with chalk.
