Found old wood chair back and turn it into a blackboard.

Found old wood chair back and turn it into a blackboard.

I simply painted the wood chair back with a coat of almost black paint {2 parts black mixed with 1 part dark green} and then painted just the center with black chalkboard paint.  I routered a keyhole into the back to hang.
