Chalk/Wine Cork Board
Hello…we are finally done with the Chalk/Cork Board project… and I love the way it turned out. What started out to be one thing ended up being some what different than planned. The Frame was purchased at a Thrift Store for $5.00, not really sure what I had planned for it, but really $5.00? couldn’t pass it up…a deal is a deal!. By the time I got it home, I had an idea, Why not, make it into a chalk board?…so, that was the plan. Mr. OMT built a backing for the frame, he had it placed upside down on work bench and the perfectionist that he is, the back looked as good as the front. Only the back had a divider in the middle (actually a brace). So… here we go again with the “I have an idea” Mr. OMT’s response was “Oh Dear, now what?” Mrs. OMT… wellll… how about, we use the back and make it a Chalk/Cork combination board? That is what it ended up being. He routed out the inside of the boards rounded the corners and stained it. My turn. ( I LOVE it, that we work so well together! There is nothing like creating and spending quality time with the one you love!) Here is where I came in. I was in charge of the placement of the corks…as I was putting the corks in place, I ran out of the same color corks… thinking …”OK, time to call the In-laws and tell them they need to drink some more wine”. I really wanted to get this done…so rather than calling the in-laws, I took the lighter colored corks and created our last name initial.. See the “H”?
The easel it is standing on is another DIY project done… will share that on another post.
