Finally Done!

I always seem to have projects in process. However, I have been wanting to get this chalkboard done for my kitchen for awhile now. I got the idea because I had an old shutter with all the louvers missing

Then I had Mr T. cut me some masonite to fit inside.

I then painted the frame and added the appliques. I mixed my own chalkboard paint since I wanted a specific color. Now I need to find some chalk. You'd think that would be easy, but I'm having some trouble. I'll have to try the the teacher store.

You might remember this candle holder I bought the other day. I bought it with the intention of painting it.


And here is the final result. I'm quite happy with how it turned out!
