Hi Infarrantly Creative fans. I’m Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs and I’m back to share a simple way to personalize your walls for little $$! This past Saturday, I went to Goodwill and found these framed paintings for only $5 each. Readily available at thrift stores, they are perfect to transform and make your own! Since mine had a sturdy wood back, I decided to make a pair of chalk boards for my entry.
I gave you a peek at this Pottery Barn Kids Stanton Collection knock-off last week when I revealed Isaac’s Black and Green Industrial bedroom makeover. It is the perfect place to keep track of the school calendar, awards and coupons won from school, some basic school supplies, birthday invites, etc. We are really trying hard to continue to give Isaac more responsibility when it comes to his knowing his schedule so this seemed like a good step in that direction.
I love projects like this. It is just a way to add custom and personal to your walls. I love subway art for the same reason. The typographic word find chalkboard, complete with special phrases for your family, is a quirky (and inexpensive!) way to add personality to your home. Welcome Karianne from Thistlewood Farms to show us how.
I think having a big calendar is essential for any family so that everyone is on the same page. I, too have a big calendar in my kitchen to sort all the activities of our family each month which is also magnetic and uses the chalk inks and I love it. Mine is a bit different (I used a glass picture frame instead). Please welcome Brook back today to share with you how to build a custom calendar that is a chalkboard and magnetic.
