Quick Tip #26: Old Doors As Chalkboards

{click to enlarge}

Can you believe this is Part Four of our little Décor Quick Tip series on awesome things to do with old reclaimed doors… and there is still a couple DIY door ideas left to explore!

#26  Why not combine two hot décor trends – repurpose an old found door by converting it into a quirky chalkboard! Shop for a character-filled salvaged door with interesting moulding, recessed panels,  or a frame with rustic textures like flaking paint. Decide on the area you want to paint with chalkboard paint – it can be the whole door or just the door insets. You can even paint the glass panes of an old French door – hang it on the wall horizontally… it makes for an excellent chalkboard day planner to organize your week! Also keep in mind that your chalkboard door does not necessarily have to be the traditional chalkboard black – chalkboard paint now comes in a multitude of funky colours…
