Chalkboards .... I need a lot of reminders - for everything - everywhere ....
Before and after shot together
Before - the mirror was toast! The backing had flaked off so much, was all mildew and buldging out behind the door. It had to go.
The finish was pretty pooched too. And what a great spot for chalkboards!

Even though I made this with the intection to use as my crafting cupboard. It was sold. I don't know why I jsut can't keep things for myself, but I have this sick need for change .... about every 3 months haha! So I make it - use it - get bored - sell it. And this one ended up in a great home! A few little changes, some paint and wax and voila - a new spot for crafting. OR, for use as a pantry.  We didnt know if was going to be one or the other - sooooooo it got named the whatchamacallit to use with the thingymabobs in the whereveritgoes spot! But that was a little too long - Whatchamacallit it is!
