3. To make the chalk board I used hardboard. Hardboard is smooth on one side and rough on the other. It is fairly thin. I used a jigsaw to cut it to size, the edges are hidden and I don't have a table saw.
4. I used spray chalk board paint in a can, I also primed the hardboard with spray primer.
5. I placed the chalkboard in the window frame then ran a bead of hot glue behind chalk board to secure in place.
This is me on a good day. (How come good days never involve full body shots?) Most days I can be found in a holey pair of track pants covered in paint. And yes, I have been known to wear this out in public. I am secretly hoping to land myself on "What Not to Wear"
