Re: S_SAT

  • DH is out of town, so I have great aspirations of getting a lot of stuff done.  I picked up a few things Embarrassed and am making good progress so far.

    image

    I cleaned out the pantry and have washed all the pantry boxes (air drying right now).  I'm also creating some labels that I'll print out to create zones.

    I've started transforming an old mirror I have into a blackboard.  Here's a pic from earlier of the frame (it was a fug gold finish - bought it 10 years ago). 

    image

    I created some "wall art" from some fun fabric and embroidery hoops.

    image

    I've also started a magnetic menu planner - that I saw on Pinterest.  I'm going to hang it in the "new and improved" pantry later today.  Here's my inspiration ...

  • Yay - magnetic menu planning board is done!  Now, I just need to plan for the rest of May using the magnets I created for our most common meals.

    image

    Also, the blackboard is looking good, except that some of the blackboard paint oversprayed onto the frame.  So I need to cover up the blackboard and do another coat on the frame.  I think I want to wait to let the blackboard paint dry for 24 hours before I put tape on it though.

    I want to make one of these, but with Spring colors, for Mother's Day for my Mom, but I don't know if she would like something like that.

    Where did you get the board to make this? I love it!! I want to make one, but didn't want to do chalk. This is great!

     

    Where are you putting the chalk board?

    I got the magnetic dry erase calendar at Target.  It was $13 and change.  The magnet paper was from Staples.  I just created some boxes/wording in Power Point and printed them up - magnet paper cuts so easily.  We tend to get in a rut, so I'm hoping menu planning at the month level will make things less "ruttish".

    The chalkboard is going to go in one of our guest rooms, so I can write little messages to our guests.
