Cabinet Door Chalkboards

I realize I am not unique by making something into a chalkboards.  But when I was down at the Habitat for Humanity Restore a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but purchase a few inexpensive cabinet doors for a project.  How can you turn down a perfectly good door for only $5?!  After thinking of a few upcoming events, I decided to turn them into chalkboards and give them as gifts.

I turned these....

into these...
Here is a quick and easy tutorial for making one of your own...
Use frog tape or blue painters tape to section off the area that you would like to paint.
Using chalkboard paint, apply paint to the cabinet door.
When the paint is dry, remove the painters tape.  Keep in mind that you may have to touch up a few places where paint crept through the tape.
Rub chalk all over to 'cure' the chalkboard. Then wipe it off with a dry cloth.
Attach D-rings to the back of the cabinet door.
Hang chalk from string to give as a gift or hang the chalkboard up in your house!
And your project is complete!
