Soda Chalkboard

P1060937
Finally, I’m done with the chalkboard.
I made it out of a metal side panel from a vintage soda cooler and a piece of MDF cut to size painted with chalkboard paint.

The custom chalk holder I made out of a wood cup/finial found at the craft store, I just painted it and added tiny magnets.

I also made bottle cap magnets.

I love the red picking through the aqua color.
