This one is simply a recycled cabinet door from Habitat for Humanity Restore, a vinyl lettering sign from TJMaxx, and 3 new knobs from Home Depot.  The door was in fine enough shape that I didnt need to repaint it.  Total spent $13.00.  Friends tell me its comparable to some catalog signs going for $49. 
This is another cabinet door from Habitats Restore.  I painted it with 2 coats of chalkboard paint, added 3 hooks and a handle repurposed as a chalk holder, and took a little corner from a baby dolls blanket for the erasing rag.

Here are 2 projects I completed in just a few days - both of which were made from cabinet doors I bought at Habitat for Humanity's Restore.  They were both in such good shape I didn't need to refinish or repaint them.  I'm still learning about working with chalkboard paint.  I think I'm going to start using the spray kind, as the brush-on kind doesn't like to cooperate with me when it's time to lift the masking tape from the protected wood.

A trick I use so that the paint doesn't come up with the tape is to take a utility knife and score a line along the tape where it meets the paint. Seems to work for me. Posted: 3:10 pm on June 23rd
