A Before and After…

The other day while I was cleaning out closets and drawers, I came across this chalkboard.  I bought it a long time ago, I don’t even remember where.  Anyway, I bought it thinking I would revamp it a little bit and just never got around to doing it.  As you can see it was scratched up and had some plastic greenery on it that just wasn’t doing anything for me. So, I purchased some chalkboard paint and repainted it, and removed the greenery.  I plan on writing different little sayings on it that would be good for me to remember or just something to make me smile.
