One of my favorite easy things to make is chalk boards. I usually use cabinet doors to make them. I had this old table/magazine rack that I took apart and used its pieces for various projects. I had the sides still and wondered what to do with them.
I decided to try a chalkboard! I filled in the holes then painted with chalk board paint.
If you look close you will notice the hooks I added to the bottom "feet part". I put them there for keys and to add a little interest.
