I purchased an awesome vintage wood United States map puzzle at the thrift store the other day - hoping it would have all the pieces. But alas a few were missing. I loved it so much I wanted to see if I could salvage it. So I brainstormed for a few days and decided it would make a great chalkboard. I took the remaining puzzle pieces out and then painted the inset part with 2 coats of Martha Stewart's Chalkboard Craft Paint in dark green. I think this will look great in Q's room with the other retro map/globe items!
