Chalkboard Door: Make Your Own

My home is littered with cheap builder-grade doors. But what I coveted in the kitchen was a chalkboard door. You know, a place to write up grocery lists and to do's. What I didn't covet was the price and installation of a new door. So instead I came up with my own version using foam core boards, chalkboard paint, and some cheap trim ... you can find the full tutorial here ...
After: Chalkboard door in kitchen made from foam core, chalkboard paint, and trim
After: Chalkboard door close-up, made using foam core, chalkboard paint, and inexpensive trim
Before: This is not my kitchen door before ... but it's what my kitchen door looked like before I added the foam core and trim.
