But I do have hutch space - and not one to ever leave anything clutter free I decided to create a chalkboard on the side of it !
A little picture molding - and voila - a place to keep notes ( and believe me this is going to come in very handy - since my memory is horrible these days )
This could so easily be done on a pantry door - or even a kitchen cabinet door ( if you HAVE to have a chalkboard and don't have wall space, that is LOL )
Since I painted the whole unit in chalkboard paint it was pretty easy - I put a coat of polyurethane over everywhere BUT the section I want to use as an actual chalkboard
And then because one wasn't enough - I painted an old clipboard I had
( I kept it open with a twist tie so I could paint under the clip )
I added a stencil ( with a chalk pen )
found a stand at the dollar store
Which was the perfect size to rest the clipboard on -
And then what the hay - while I was at the dollar store I found a cutting board with a hanger on top
And made one last one
probably a terrible cutting board - but it makes for a great little art piece
I added a hook to hang a whisk from
Okay I've got to beat it myself now - I have too many appointments and errands today and too many layers of clothing to put on to try and keep my core temperature at a level I can live with .............
Hoping this cold snap leaves soon - it's really been unbearable lately
I may hang a chalkboard from every piece of furniture I own LOL !!!
Have a wonderful day everyone !
