Okay, I know some of you are saying what my husband said when I told him I was starting this project: "How many chalkboards do you need, Lady?" And my answer is always: "Just one more." While it's true that I have what might be classified as a slight chalkboard addiction, I do have a purpose in mind for each and every one of them. And this one will totally be put to good use.
It's my new extra-large pantry chalkboard and I hope it will help put an end to our problem of starting multiple lists for the things we need and never being able to track them all down when it's time to head to the store. This way, whenever we run out of something or think of something we need, anyone in the family can write it on the chalkboard. Then, when it's time to leave for the store, I'll just snap a quick picture of the list with my phone, and then it's with me when I get to the store. And if by chance I forget to take the picture before I leave, I'm hoping I can call my husband at home and sweet-talk him into sending me the pic!
This is going to be so fun.
And if there's anyone still left out there who hasn't made a chalkboard and you're wondering how it's done, click here to see my previous posts on chalkboards. I made this latest one using the frame from a mirror I found at an estate sale a few months ago. I couldn't find a place for the mirror, so I decided to take it out and just use the frame. Amazingly, it was the perfect size to fit in our space in the pantry. I love it when that happens!
Where do you use your chalkboards?
