Roof Tile Message Board

Slate roofing tile
Heavy-duty braided twine
Flat drawer pull
To create an outdoor message center, convert a slate roofing tile (from a home-supply store) into a chalkboard.
Thread heavy-duty braided twine through the 2 preexisting holes, tie a knot, and hang on a sturdy hook. A flat drawer pull, turned upside down and glued to the bottom edge, can serve as a chalk tray.
