Ah, I finally got a chance to hang something on the walls at my new OLD schoolhouse.
This is a chalkboard that was from the schoolhouse and was hanging downstairs in the workshop. While it is probably not original to the schoolhouse in 1932 because those would have been black, this was a chalkboard used in the school. The school closed in the 70's and so by then the slates would have been changed to green chalkboards. Here is your fun fact for you: blackboards were changed to green because they are easier on the eyes and were changed in the 60's.
We had gotten accustomed to having a chalkboard in the kitchen in our old house to write our weekly menu on (which is loosely followed) and a grocery list.
It may look like it is hung low, but we have 12 foot high ceilings so it is hung as high as it can be for me to still be able to write on.
I love it on the exposed brick (which was the school's coal chimney).
1 "project" down, 50 kajillion to go!
