Thank you! You do make it sound simple. Do you make these chalkboards to sell?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Twelve Creative Ways To Decorate With Message Boards
A classic chalkboard leaning against a wall in this dining room adds to the comfortable charm of the design. The walnut stained frame is perfect here, placed alongside a ledge lined with wood in a similar tone.
Lily Gahagan added this to Get Artful with Artichokes
Carve out the artichoke heart and you've got a space that fits a votive candle and holder just right.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Chalk It Up
If you're feeling nervous about adding chalkboard paint to your walls or furniture, painting a piece of plywood framed out with molding might help ease your fears. The panel can be moved from room to room and changed up to fit into any décor.
Finally, a little bit of fun. A blackboard isn't necessarily a traditional feature, but if you can get the right style, it is a very practical one. Pop family messages and shopping lists on there or create a mini bistro and announce the menu to your guests.More: 15 Elements of a Traditional Kitchen
