Hey there! After receiving several requests, I put together a tutorial of the easel style chalkboard I made for our front porch. I am certainly no expert at making these and there may be an easier way, however, this is how I did it. I used inexpensive 1 x 2's and leftover bead board. You will also need 8 L brackets, two screw eyes, two small hinges and a piece of twine, I used hemp. Total cost was around $15.
