How I Turned A Large Clipboard Into a Chalkboard Message Center

I just love clipboards--- and chalkboards.
I was straightening my craft area when I came across this large clipboard
that I had gotten at a thrift store.
And I thought to myself. . .
What's better than a chalkboard clipboard?
How about a giant chalkboard clipboard?!?
This one measures 18" square.

I started off by covering the clip with painter's tape so I wouldn't mess up the silver.

Then I applied two coats of chalkboard paint and waited 24 hours for it to dry.

Now I have a nice message center to keep all my stuff together- like the weekly menu, coupons, appointment reminders, and even love notes to my family.

Don't you just love chalkboard paint?
I'm going to take a look around to see what else I can paint. . .

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

The Lord has done great things for us 
and we are filled with joy.
Psalm 126:3
