A month or so ago, I told Jeremy about an idea I had for a chalkboard for the school room/my work area. I went on elaborating about how I thought we should do it, what the top should look like, what I'd use it for... on and on, as I always do when describing ideas I have. He liked the idea, but I didn't really expect him to think it was worth pushing to the top of the project priority list. To my amazement, only days later it was complete! ... my dear sweet, hubby... thank you!
Our walls are textured, so we had a thin piece of wood cut to size from Lowes. Then I drew the shape I wanted for the top and Jeremy cut it in the garage with our Dremel :) He painted it with chalkboard paint, and screwed it to the wall. Ta-Da! I love it. I love the way it looks, and it's awesome for school.
You can't really tell from the pictures, but it's on the open end of our school room/ my work space, in our kind of open hallway. It perfect because it's very central in the house and it's also above tile... making for easy chalk dust clean up.
