Sometimes my girls think I’m crazy when we go to the thrift store and I pick up something that looks like this. But when I first saw this I had a vision! So today I’m going to show you how to make a menu chalkboard with a wood shape found at a thrift store.

How to Make a Menu Chalkboard
I’m sure someone once thought this was cute. I probably would have painted it and put it in my kitchen back in the 90s.
All I did for this project was to lightly sand the whole surface and apply two coats of chalkboard paint.
When the paint was completely dry I “seasoned” the chalkboard by laying a piece of chalk on it’s side and covering the entire surface. Then I wiped it all off and wrote my message.
I’m still working on my chalkboard lettering. I have the first book below and it’s been a HUGE help!
Yes, those are Christmas lights above. I kept them up ALL year long! Made the kitchen very festive.
