In my "parade" of repurposed vintage, wooden water ski projects here yet another one! It's a chalkboard, message center & key organizer. I hand picked these skis out of my stash for this project. It's actually not that easy squaring up objects that have rounded edges. But I made it work. The new owner could use the key tags I made or make some of their own and place them in the upside down drawer tabs. Up top, after some head scratching, I worked out a way to let folks know if the the other folks at the place are "IN" or "OUT" by attaching some signage I had on hand to one of the biggest metal fins that came off of one of the water skis. Of course, there's some yardsticks that snuck into this piece. What's new!?! The thick yardstick border up the small platform compartment that holds the chalk and eraser. The whole piece is super sturdy and has very strong wire in the back for hanging up and enjoying.
