Don’t mean to bore you all with something I have mentioned many times before, but I love school things, especially vintage ones.
Did not necessarily like school, but loved all the things that go with school, paper, crayons, pencils, and such.
I always wanted to be an elementary art school teacher. I know, I have mentioned that before too!
God must have had other plans for my life, since it did not happen. Maybe I just didn’t try to make it happen! We all need to help ourselves with dreams, I think I gave up on mine!
I knew the first time I saw this old desk drawer, on the floor at the flea market, that it would come to life again, as a chalkboard!
The wood is quite nice, I loved the warm color. It reminded me of the large wood framed chalkboards in classrooms when growing up, I can close my eyes and see them!
When I think of my early school days, I can almost smell the cute jar of paste with the little brush attached. Remember?
I just cleaned the old drawer a bit, and painted the inside with chalkboard paint, that was it!
It has found a place in my creative work area, it is really a special piece, I love it!!
Thanks for letting me share this project with you.
I wonder what happened to the rest of the desk?
Love to all, don’t give up on your dreams!
