Chalkboards and chalkboard paint seem to be all the rage recently. So while I certainly didn't start the trend, I did have a chalkboard before they became a big thing. I just didn't do anything with it for more than a year. (That seems to be a recurring theme around here...)
Over a year ago, I bought a small chalkboard at a flea market. I thought we would make a frame for around it and hang it in the dining room near all the toys, but we went a much simpler route and used mirror clips to attach it to the wall and ultimately decided to put it in the kitchen.
This is the response I got when I said, "Go show me how you use your chalkboard!"
Too early in the morning, perhaps? I know it was before my cup of coffee. And he never got out of his pajamas that day either.
The last thing I want to do is attach one of those Scrabble tile holders below the board to be a little chalk ledge.
