My mom has been coveting the board that we have at my house every time she came by, and hinting that she would like one too, but larger. Her kitchen is mainly red and black, so I decided to surprise her with this. Turned out well for making it up as I went, but I was disappointed for the way this red “stain” turned out more like paint, so I decided to distress it which is something she likes. I made the chalkboard from hardboard and using the chalkboard spray paint with about 12 coats to make is smooth and uniform. I wish the box joints were easier to see though, but the next one will be better and stained to look natural.

-- It's a BEAUTIFUL day to cut some wood & build something!
