old window chalkboard…

hi everyone!  today, I wanted to share my chalkboard.    because of  thick paint on the window pane, I took out the pane and my husband used the pane as a pattern on a piece of wood.

I painted 3 coats of chalkboard paint on the wood insert, and painted VERY simply roses at the top. here’s how it looks now.  I LOVE it!
the chippy column behind the chalkboard was found in the same store.
