Yep, its stable!
Heres what the cabinet door started out looking like, notice the ledge was already there. Perfect for my little plan... 
Detail of tin. 
Look how perfectly the chalk fits in there! 
Hope she doesnt see this before I give it to her!
Yep, its stable!

Yep, it's stable!

When I called my mom and asked what she would like for her birthday, like a good junker's mom, she said "anything homemade." Boy was I in luck, because all I had to do was go out into the garage and whip something up with the materials I had. With some chalkboard paint, an old discarded cabinet door, a small piece of tin, and two hooks from the 'Depot...out came a chalkboard wallhanging!

PS - I sent a BUNCH of junk home with her after Thanksgiving. Wonder what she will come up with next! Posted: 5:32 pm on December 4th
