A Homemade Chalkboard....One Dollar Later

I got this Debbie Mumm calendar holder at a Thrift store for a buck. 
I took the tag off the back, and then got out my spray can of chalk....the same one I've been using for almost a year now.  I've read that you should rub the side of chalk along the whole surface, this makes it easier to write/erase/write/erase.  I've hung it in the laundry room that is now going to be my craft room because, let's face it, I do a lot more crafting than laundry.  It's my project to do list.  I'm a tad bit OBSESSED with list.  More on the 'craft cave' later....less on the to do list, there are padded rooms for people that talk about to do list, and I don't have time to decorate a padded room, it would be so limiting because I doubt they allow nails, scissors, and stuff.

You need to get a chalkboard pen...they sell them at Michaels or craft stores...they are amazing and write so much better/easier than regular chalk!

Great job! So amazing how things can be transformed! Super love your blog!

Makes a very pretty chalkboard.. I noticed that coincidentally both yours and mine posts today include the word 'Mumm' in completely different contexts, how odd!

Found you through "The Girl Creative"! Your recipes look fantastic! My husband travels to Spain frequently and he loves Paella ... he has been begging me to make it.

I love your chalkboard spoons; what a fantastic idea.

I'm happy to have found your blog!
