chalkboards

A place to write the week’s schedule, reminders, kudos, messages, etc..  In case one thinks the chalkboard is simplistic….. a schedule on display shows respect for all ages, mommy ceases being the human calendar (pretty much), & weekly quotes or scripture communicate priorities & give life direction.  Plus, chalkboards add character to any room!

Directions:

  1. find a frame, make sure it is deep enough to hold a board
  2. cut a piece of hardboard to size (big box home improvement stores will typically cut for free)
  3. prime & paint (I used Benjamin Moore), let it dry & cure
  4. secure into frame with enough backing that the board is solid when pressed
  5. attach frame to wall
