So a few weeks ago my mom and I were driving around with the kids, and we stumbled upon a garage sale that enticed me to stop and look further. I found this amazing, old chalkboard for $1 and just knew I had to have it. Not sure what I was going to use it on, and my mom came up with the great idea of using it as the base of one of my many calendars. Although it is quite large, measuring 24" X 24" overall, I absolutely loved the way it turned out. I purchased some metal sheeting and cut it down to 16" X 16". My super talented hubby helped me to attach the metal to the board using rivets. How cool is that! (My favorite new tool by the way!) There is something so satisfying about incorporating the past into the present in a new way. As many of you know, I get butterflies whenever I get a find of the day on one of my many excursions. Have you ever bought something old and gave it a new life? I challenge you to stop by a yard sale or even the thrift store and transform something old into something super cool. Please share your great inspiration, I would love to see!
