Well, here’s my most recently finished project, a message board/drop off station in the kitchen right by the door leading to our garage.
I know my husband was a little scared the day he came home from work and saw a huge black rectangle painted on the wall, but surely he’s getting used to my shenanigans by now. Come on, we’ve been married for 9 years now… hehe.
Anyhow, I used Valspar’s Chalkboard paint on the wall, and then tacked up a ribbon border (measured, cut, and singed some grosgrain ribbon to fit the chalkboard outline) with a few little pinches of …
this amazing stuff!
Aahh, no extra holes in the wall, and I can change the ribbon border to suit the seasons and holidays! Plus, it’s super easy to take off.
My husband got these plastic file holders from work (they were actually going to throw away these gems!). They hold the boys’ schoolwork perfectly!
The monogrammed hooks were at Hobby Lobby for only $2.50 each because they were half-off the week I was in there. Do you ever find yourself only shopping there for something particular when you know it’s going to be half-off? We’re so
cheap frugal, aren’t we?
Just perfect. The kids can look at the schoolwork they’ve done any time they want, and it’s not cluttering up the kitchen. Plus, I have no reason to leave the house without a backpack or important note anymore because the notes are stuck right to the chalkboard with my Loctite putty, and the backpacks are right there as we head out the door.
Time for my usual Coke break. It’s totally well-deserved today. After all, that was a big project (wink, wink).Pin It
