Can’t find a pen? A notepad? Just remembered what you need to pick up the next time you’re on grocery duty.
Add a fun and funky chalk board to your kitchen or office. It adds a touch of colour and cheekiness to your space! We found this one at Homesense in the antiqued green shown with the wire basket already attached for somewhere around $29 – $39. The basket is great because it perfectly displays our vintage mason jars (which my bunches picked up as a surprise from an antique barn). You could use mason jars or any jar you fancy ;). Throw in keepsakes, odds and ends, coffee, tea, pens, cookies – whatever you feel like. We store the chalk, wine corks (I put my MIL up to the task of collecting as many as possible), and seashells from vacation. Cookbooks or magazines could also sit nicely on display. If you are a DIYer then you could just as easily tackle this yourself with:
- old frame (paint it out if you want)
- piece of chalk board (or use chalk board paint)
- wire basket
- screws/nails/hot glue/small brackets/drill depending on your materials
- accessories and chalk
And away you go!!
Finished with your grocery list…add a nice little quote for everyday inspiration or just a simple “Home Sweet Home”.
Do you have a any neat chalk board projects to share??
