chalkboard on wall

we had some leftover barn wood...

and thought a chalk board behind our counter would be perfect!

so I cut the first piece and nailed it up...

them we marked off the area to paint...we painted directly on the wall,,,

finished framing...and thank the lord!! for once I measured correctly and it worked the first time!!!

love it!!!
we will move this gorgeous 1920's picking ladder over to the side a little more and add some pretties to it!!!
