Look What I Just Did

vintage lace blackboard
Look what I made today. One great big, old and dusty frame, some hardboard painted with blackboard paint and a length of vintage lace. Now hanging in my kitchen for viewing and writing on.
No excuses to forget anything now.

the lace is a lovely touch, I would never think to add something like that. It's a lovely finish though!

Funny what a difference a little tweak can make!

Really really nice (not to mention useful!)

You can make everything out of nothing! It looks gorgeous. Great alternative to Post-It notes, which keep floating around my apartment at all times (they're colour coordinated with my apartment, but still)...
