Hi, my name is Marisol Oviedo. Welcome to ShabbyChalks, where you will find "one of a kind" chalkboards all made from salvaged materials!

I am inspired by all things vintage; anything rusty, crusty, or chippy calls to me. I find great satisfaction in rescuing architectural finds and restoring them into chalkboards that can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Many of the windows, vintage frame and doors I use are over 90 years old! They once proudly graced Victorians, Bungalows, Craftsmans and Farmhouses & were part of the most prominent homes in America, made out of magnificant woods; walnut, oak & cherry. Some get refinished, others are best left in the state I found them & each is unique in it's own way with a story to tell.

As I mentioned before, this started out as a hobby. I never expected the response I got from the etsy community! It has been a wonderful experience everyday, and the gratification I get knowing that these windows, so full of character and made during an era when life was lived at a slower pace, are not heading to the landfill, brings me so much joy!

May one of these chalkboards find it's way to your home and bring you much happiness as well!

PLEASE take a moment to read my policies on shipping and refunds BEFORE purchasing. Thank you.
