About 5 years ago, I purchased this old battered frame. I told the Raz Man I was going to make a blackboard out of it for the dining room. He laughed because no one put backboards in their house back then. Now, I am sure you all want to heave at the sight of yet another blackboard project in the blog world. But 5 years ago this would have made Pinterest! (not that it was around 5 years ago) Anyway, we finally cut a piece of board for it and got it hung yesterday.
It fills a big empty space and balances out the enormous cabinet on the other side. And while I won't be so cool as to neatly print my dinner menu on it....I was intending it to be signed by various dinner guests as a bit of a keepsake journal of visitors to the house...those badly behaved will have their names rubbed off after they leave. Small trivial fact: White chalk costs 50 cents more than coloured chalk per 12 pack.?????
While in theory, a guest signing is a good idea, I tend to think it will become full of semi-coherent and silly drivel written by guests who stay too late and drink too much.!
