I have always been on the chicken bandwagon. My taste for them in home decor has changed over the years, probably yours too?? When I spotted this rooster, I felt like I could give him a farmhouse makeover. I am loving his new look. This rooster kitchen chalkboard is welcoming everyone to gather around the table.

He was $3.97 and I felt like that was a little too much, but I decided he was worth it. I’ve noticed that Goodwill has really upped their prices. Murphy is sniffing out the situation. I think Murphy thinks this is Henry, my friend Gail’s rooster from My Repurposed Life.(You may have noticed that I found a chair at Goodwill too, maybe that will be my next makeover.)

    1. Henry Jr. is soooo darn cute! I have a little butler guy that probably would look better if he was painted one color. hmmmm

      Who doesn’t love a great chalkboard? your project is sooo cute Debbie, as always!



      ps Henry and Etta are on my last nerve…. they keep “messing” up my new backyard. 🙁

    2. I never get tired of seeing what people come up with using a repurposed item. I love thrift stores and yard sales. You never know what kind of treasure you are going to find. Sometimes I see a piece and know exactly what could be done with it to make it look fresh and attractive. I don’t think I would have given this chicken a second look but you made it look great.
