I saw this very old, chipping, dirty fireplace cover at a consignment store way back in the summer. I didn't want to mess with it because it was in bad shape, chipping and painted Pepto pink! However the cover was still in the shop when I dropped some things off a couple of weeks ago. I looked it over more closely and noticed the awesome shield design and other cool details.
black foam poster board from Jo-Ann Fabric. I just stuck it on the back wedging it into some little metal notches. No cutting. No glue. It just worked. I'm sure you could cut and hot glue to fit whatever opening you need though. Then I drew my "Noel" as on a normal chalkboard.
I was even able to clean up messes with a damp q-tip like on a regular chalkboard.
Even up close you can't tell it's a foam board. With my coupon it was only around $3.00. I don't think it can be erased but the back is blank so I'll probably flip it over after Christmas and do a non-seasonal design. Easy!
The house is really coming together now. I hope you'll stop back in next weekend for my full Christmas tour.
Hope you like it! Do you think we will get sick of chalkboards anytime soon? I'm still loving them!
A Merry Christmas to you!
