A quick call to my husband that went a little something like this... "hey, how do i use the miter saw?" He was a little leary to say the least. He told me to hold my wood firm, wear eye protection, and be CAREFUL! uh ok honey lol :)
This is about 30 inches high... I built the frame for each side and then used some scrap 1/4" wood I had as well ( I painted those with black chalkboard paint) I used a black wood stain I had leftover from another project and then coated it with some poly. I used 2 hinges on the top and twine with 2 eye screws to secure it from flopping on the floor.

I just love how it turned out! Now when the kids ask what is for dinner I can just point :) and as a bonus I can use both sides :) I am linking up to a great Link Party. Lots of great home organizing ideas for you to browse... Can't wait to see more ideas!
