I love it when a project turns out to be just as great as I had hoped and dreamed. Such is the case with my chalkboard.
This is the door between my kitchen and laundry room. I painted it first with magnetic paint (which didn’t work at all) and then chalkboard paint. It serves as a message board, an ongoing list of purchase requests, and an easel.
Whenever someone asks me to buy something for them, I tell them to put it on my board. When I go to the store next, I have a list all ready.
It makes me smile to walk by and see everyone’s handwriting. Pickles for Becca, string cheeses for Savannah, frozen strawberries for Caleb, 3 minute pizzas (and a puppy) for Josh. Jonah wrote DoGfooD there underneath the applesauce. It’s his job to feed Lucy, you see, and she’s running low on food. He feels quite powerful being able to write something important on the list, and have his request granted. Even Simon likes to add his 2 cents.
Yes, that chalkboard was well worth the effort! Maybe I should try finishing some of the other projects I have started? Hmmm…
