Roadkill mirror

100_2729

I found this *HUGE* mirror on the side of the road when I was driving kids to pre-school.   Once the car was empty, I drove past it again to check it out.   Solid wood, huge mirror, cute details.  I grabbed it and wrangled it into the car.


At first, I was hoping to paint it white and keep the mirror intact.  However, it wasn't in good shape.  The mirror was old and the shiny part was flaking off.    So I thought about it for a few days.


I decided to turn it into a huge black board.   Did you know that chalkboard paint comes in a spray paint?  For real!  $4!


It hangs in our hallway with messages like "Happy Fall", or the schedule for Brian while I was out of town.  The kids play tic-tac-toe and make silly people on the bottom when they are lucky enough to find a piece of chalk.
