chalk talk

Revisiting the chalkboard in the home idea today.  The first post regarding chalkboards can be found in the ‘wall works’ category or here:  http://edit423.com/2011/05/18/chalkboards/

Not sure what we’d do without our kitchen chalkboard!  They’re also super fun in kids’ rooms:

To find cute chalkboard options in the Kansas City area, try Vintage Market in Zona Rosa, Found (Parkville), Marshall’s or TJ Maxx.  Of course, there’s always the option to make your own!  Go to the link above for general instructions.

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
