I’m not sure if the chalkboard trend will be with us much longer but that’s okay, I still wanted a chalkboard sign for my hutch. I don’t have a mantel so this dining room hutch is my décor central. And since this frame was just sitting around and fit perfectly on the top shelf, it seemed like it was meant to be.
