Chalkboard Love

After receiving a couple of emails about where I got my chalkboard from last weeks post  I realized I never blogged about this new treasure.

Remember when I posted about all the awesome family heirlooms I inherited. If not go check it here 
There was lots of other random gems I scored but didn't talk about and this 1930's - 40's tabletop was one of them. No legs or stand. Just a tabletop, ready to be thrown away like yesterday's trash and I snagged it. I had hoped to create a new table from this but was in need of a new chalkboard and well I had left over chalkboard paint and no legs to build a table sooo Chalkboard won!

I cleaned it, painted it, drilled in some D-rings and added some mounting wire and called it a day! It is leaning on my breakfast bistro at the moment but will return to the sunroom as my Weekly Planning Board.
I love it! 
Oh and the heart banner is left over heart doilies from last Valentine's Tea Party and I just sewed them along some vintage bias tape. Easy Peasy.
Linking up with this lovely blog!
