Chalk boards

I do love Chalk Boards, this works great in a kitchenA Calendar in the Office, notice the pencil holder! Love this, who would a thunk it? Is this Fabulous or What How about some Chalk Art Work  Love this redo Recycle Box, for now  Paint the glass panels with chalk board paint, Love This too!Everybody can use one of these Love these Crates...Love these tags on the Baskets This is our newest Chalk Board! I found this at the cutest Flea Market type store, I didn't need another Chalk Board as I have one in the kitchen, But the Sales Girls said it was 1/2 off! So there you go, it's an old cabinet door I have hung it side way  ( It was painted yellow and have left it for now).  The coat/key rack is from Pier One and it has vintage type door knobs with hooks below, it hangs next garage door entry. So I told the Mister now you can leave me a note if your gone when I get home! That was my excuse for buying the Chalk Board, and look he did! How Cute is that.....

Lots of good ideas. Can you believe I don't have one single chalkboard in my house? Hmmmm....I need to find a spot for one.

Hugs!

All fantastic ideas!! I'm drawn to the globe though. How interesting. Oh, and yes the one that proudly proclaimed "Hamptons" for the weekend. Posh, posh. Ooo, speaking of, I'm not a big fan of Tamara now that's she has set Gretchen up like that. What a ______.

What a great post Cathleen! Chalkboards do seem to be the "in" thing right now. I could have used them back when my kids were younger. Especially love the storage containers.
You did good with your chalkboard door. I love the bright yellow. Now go catch a wave with the hubby!! :-)

I'm loving this post Cathleen! Although I think if I had a chalkboard in my kitchen it would soon be covered with MOTH's 'interesting' cartoons & messages.

He thinks its a big joke, but he's now been banned from writing on the shopping list I keep on the bench, 'cos when I open it up @ the Supermarket, I've been known to almost fall over with shock @ the things I've found from him!! And I'm not talking sugar & Cornflakes here!!!

I have a major fascination with chalkboard paint. I really like that globe idea. And I have some windows in my garage that would be great too. Thank you for sharing these. :)
