Thankful Chalkboard

I got this made Thankful ChalkBoard a little late this month but next year I hope to use it all month long so we can write down the many blessings that come daily.
I started with cutting a shutter door in 1/2.
I painted the board "frame" and then drilled holes in the top for the fabric ribbon.
This is so cool. . .I just figured it out. Instead of measuring a cup of Flat paint, I got this "sample" Behr container(from Home Depot & the samples only come in Flat) to just add the 2 Tbl. of  non-sanded tile grout to make the Chalkboard Paint. It was so much easier! And you can have a different color than the boring Black & Gray. I did a Chocolate Brown(Dark Truffle UL140-2).
Brush on the Chalkboard Paint. I did 3 coats. Sand lightly(with the FINE sandpaper) between each coat. Then "condition" the board before the first use.
*Condition means to lay the chalk on its side and cover the whole board. Then wipe off with a clean dry cloth. You are now ready to write on the chalkboard.

 Drill a hole in the top of the frame for the wooden pot(sorry not sure of the size cause I had it leftover from another project) to hold the chalk.

    It is a very hard situation when playing the lottery and never won, or keep winning low fund not up to 100 bucks, i have been a victim of such a tough life, the biggest fund i have ever won was 100 bucks, and i have been playing lottery for almost 12 years now, things suddenly change the moment i came across a secret online, a testimony of a spell caster called dr emu, who help people in any type of lottery numbers, i was not easily convinced, but i decided to give try, now i am a proud lottery winner with the help of dr emu, i won $1,000.0000.00 and i am making this known to every one out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery.
