I picked up this old easel/chalkboard at Aussie Junk in Mitchell a few weeks ago along with a few other trays and things for a whopping $15. There were some masonite boards screwed to the front and back, and I was planning to use it as a stand for my market signage. But beneath them were chalkboards, so I decided to give it a little makeover and use the chalkboards to write my prices on for markets!
All it needed was a couple of coats of white glossy enamel on the frame, and 2 coats of chalkboard paint (my first adventure with this stuff) on the drawing space. I alwmost forgot to take a “before” photo:
As it turns out, it’s a bit of a heavy mofo so I’m not sure if I’ll end up using it for many more markets, unless I get a flatbed trolley or something to cart it around on. So it may have just been a very “in-advance” DIY for when I have kidlets and they are old enough to use it =P
