Above Cabinet Distressed Chalkboard

I’ll admit it. I’m a little obsessed with chalkboards right now.

Why, you may ask?

Because they are awesome.

And easy.

And you can literally transform anything into a chalkboard…..almost anything.

To see how I prepared the actual chalkboard part go to this post:

I was going for a pretty distressed look. I painted the frame black and then basically scraped the paint off and sanded the crap out of it.



I like the heavy destructed look.


I wrote names of unique names of dishes at a Cajun Restaurant.  Well, they’re unique to me, a Mid-western girl.


Bricks are great to put items on that you want to display at the top of your cabinets.


Already thinking of my next chalkboard project……told you I’m obsessed!
