These hinges just needed a little tin to turn them into arrows. 
A little clock hand for decoration. 
Added some cute frames that fit the paneled area. 
The hinge on this door was glorious!

This arrow and door project was pretty simple. First chalkboard paint the panels and then add some frames. (Don't have chalkboard paint?  Try adding something coarse in your paint like glitter or plaster!) The screen  door hinges basically screamed " add a tin quiver!" Lol Now, you'll see arrows on every 1970's screen door around. Be for warned, people don't like it when you ask for their door hinge.  Happy Easter everyone :)

Annette, the intention was to use this in my garden wedding with the arrows pointing out dinner dancing and whatnot. I ran out of time unfortunately to do the lettering but it still functions to write daily inspirations or as an organizer.
Shamrockerin, the next door i'm turning into a chalkboard is a single solid pane. The technique can be transfered to all different pane doors and if you can'take find a frame to fit, just paint one on :) Posted: 10:20 pm on March 31st

I would love to see a pic capturing the surroundings. I love these type projects but I am not good at staging them
Keep givivg us such original ideas!
