    Comments about Personalized Chalkboard:

    I was so excited to get this item as an anniversary present for my husband. I got it yesterday and was instantly disappointed. The pictures on the website don't prepare you for the lack of quality in the product.

    While the chalkboard is very large and has plenty of room to write on, the frame is rather flimsy. It is made of distressed wood which is light and I have concerns about its durability, especially given the other review that mentioned that the chalkboard holder fell off. The mounting hardware that is on the back is great for picture frames, but if you plan on writing on the chalkboard while it is hanging from that wire, you'll have to hold the sides so the frame doesn't slip. It should come with better brackets that are more suited to something that should be fixed.

    Also, the photograph on the website shows that there is NO APOSTROPHE in the last name, which is grammatically how it should be. We have other name plates and they do not include apostrophes unless they are specifying something that is ours, i.e. "The White's Kitchen". Unfortunately the return policy doesn't allow for grammatical errors on the part of the artist.

    Finally, this is not a true chalkboard. It seems to be a piece of MDF that has been painted with chalkboard paint. You can see the various brush strokes and there are little bumps of dust that got painted in as well. If you don't plan on writing on the board very often, this might not be an issue. The first time we wrote on it and tried to erase it, we couldn't. The writing ghosted and we had to wipe down the board with a wet cloth. The eraser is basically useless.

    Bottom line: NOT WORTH THE MONEY. The quality isn't there.

      We had a problem with the first product that was delivered and the service was superb. When the second version came, it was great. The only slight issue was that the chalk tray was not very securely attached so my husband added some additional fixings

        It's special to have a one-of-a-kind item that is artful and utilitarian at the same time. I like that it's constructed of reclaimed barn wood too!
