Stenciled Chalk Board Cupboard Door {Repurpose}

I love discarded cupboard doors.  If I see a cabinet or cupboard on the curb that I don't want or have room for, I will still whip out my screwdriver (I've learned to always keep one in my truck!) and at least salvage the doors.  They make great signs and chalkboards.

Here's my homemade DIY chalkboard paint recipe:

I painted the edge a light blue color and used a stencil to give it some character and pizzazz.

I made this stencil using a clear plastic folder, an image I found through Google, and an X Acto knife.

Who even know where this knob came from, as I have quite a stash, but I painted it white and it fit into the hole perfectly.

P.S. In case you're wondering about the bottle, it's just a spray painted beer bottle I dug out of the ditch while I was walking one day.  The weeds sticking out are also spray painted and I found them in my back yard. :)
