Repurposed dresser drawers into Chalk Boards!

My favorite thing is to find what others consider to be junk and turn it into something with a purpose and value.  I repurposed dresser drawers into chalk boards.

Here is what I started with:  Plain, boring dresser drawers that had seen their better days.  These drawers had stickers on them along with a child’s art work.

I forgot to take a before picture, it is not like I did not have time, they sat in my garage for months before I started.  This picture was taken after I removed the drawers and sanded them down.

I spray painted the drawer fronts with chalkboard paint.  I needed a few coats of the chalkboard paint to get the deepness I preferred.

The best part of these drawers is the built in chalk holder.  This was my inspiration to turn these into chalk boards.

These are for sale at my shop and I am sure they wont last.  Where would you hang these in your house?
