Primitive Picture Frame CHALKBOARD. Dimensions apprx 22 inches by 24 inches. Sawtooth hangers included on back. Layered paint, red on black; white on black; mustard on black’ mustard on pumpkin – distressed finish- with final coat of stain. The rosettes (and many others) were made for me by Charles (helluvawreck). THANK YOU CHARLES! P.S. I used the Kreg jig to build the frames.

Julie- I used the router to rout a channel on the back and then cut the board to fit the hole- then tacked it in with little brads. Just like a regular picture frame.

Not trying to teach Granny to suck eggs if you already know, and I may have already mentioned this before (but memory plays tricks at my age) but a tip given to me some years ago prevents the first chalk marks appearing as background ‘ghosts’ even after trying to erase them.
Before use, the whole surface of a new board should be covered with broad chalk bands made using the side of a chalk stick.
When these are wiped off, subsequent ordinary marks should erase completely.

Kelly, these look great. You are so productive and everything you are making is really looking great. I believe that you have found your niche and I don’t know whether you’ll have a store, studio, gallery, or mail order business connected to your shop but you will make a way to sell the wonderful things you make in your shop. God Bless.

Thanks Mads, but I don’t think I will ever master any of this stuff! :)
