Your very own chalkboard has been framed in wood that has been distressed to a shabby red finish. It has a scrolled metal pediment top (please note: We will unscrew the two screws that attach the pediment to the top in order to safely ship this. ALL you will have to do is simply screw it back on (the holes are already there).
Important to note that the chalkboard area has been SEASONED. We mention that because MANY of the "chalkboards" you see are NOT suitable for actual USE because the surface area hasn't been prepared (seasoned) properly. So when you WRITE on them you can't actually erase what you've written (they call that "ghosting".....where you can still see the outlines of where you wrote). It takes a few days to properly season a chalkboard and we have taken the time to do that.
Be sure to use regular old CHALK sticks (they work much better than the ones with wax in them). And only clean the chalkboard area with a dry cloth (or a slightly damp one).
This could be hung anywhere. Measures 18" wide and 22 1/8" tall. The framed chalkboard (minus the scrolled metal pediment) is 18" wide and 15 3/8" tall. You will have to use the existing openings of the scrolled pediment to hang this (OR screw it directly to the wall). The one you SEE.....is the EXACT one you will RECEIVE.
