Do you want to create a message board in your home that has a rustic, shabby-chic look? This hanging barn door chalkboard looks like an old vintage remnant that can add a lot of character to your home.
You install the upper metal track on the wall, just like you would with a sliding barn door. However, this door stays stationary, so you can hang artwork on either side of it or install it next to a cabinet or window.
Vintage=Style Chalkboard Door is Both Stylish & Functional:
However, the magnetic chalkboard surface makes this stylish piece truly functional too. For example, you can write reminders on it, draw a giant calendar or list the family meals for the weak. Of course, you can just doodle on it too.
Note: The manufacturer recommends using only regular chalk and not chalk markers on this surface. I suggest using dustless chalk, since it doesn’t make a mess and is more enjoyable to work with.
In addition, the magnetic clips (included) allow you to stick photos, postcards and restaurant menus up on the board. Keep important phone numbers and event dates in an easy-to-see spot.
Note: The door face comes with a horizontal bar in the middle that you can use to hang items on. However, you can choose to not install it if you want. The bar is not attached when shipped.
The erasable surface makes it easy to update and refresh your giant notepad whenever you need to. Plus, you don’t need to worry about making mistakes when drawing.
Note: If you plan on using your door as a drawing tablet or art station, take a look at Chalk Lettering Made Easy. It’s surprisingly simple to learn how to draw and write with chalk. Plus, you can give your chalkboard door a truly rustic farmhouse kitchen style.
