Salvaged Cypress Window turned "Chic Chalkboard"!

Our refinished, salvaged, cypress window turns into a Chic chalkboard! This cutie is finished in Teal and the bold contrast with the blackboard is stunning!!

 Available for sale...

All original hardware remain, including the rope.  We think this will look amazing paired with a vintage backplate and crystal door knob to be mounted on the wall and hung by the rope!! (See pics below). Just ask and we can include that pair with your purchase for an additional $35. 

These are LIMITED in quantity at the moment so reserve yours today.  You can do solid blackboard (chalk), solid cork board or combination chalk and cork.  

Here is a combination Chalk/Cork finished in a minty "Sea Glass" and walnut finish:

 Available for sale ...

This is my personal piece and is hung on a vintage crystal door knob and vintage, rustic backplate.  I chose double cork as I have a large chalk board in my kitchen. This one is finished in a minty "Sea Glass" and walnut finish.

 (This one is Not for Sale but can be duplicated in the smaller window size)
