Turn an Old Chalkboard into a Family Message Center
Add a rustic look to your decor and keep your family organized by turning a large chalkboard into calendar and memo board.
Materials and Tools:
tabletop or 2-inch slab of wood
heavy gauge piano hinge
bins or cubbies with baskets
heavy gauge clothesline with looped ends
The idea is to have every creative tool in one dedicated place.
If you're worried about damaging carpet, put down plastic runners or get mess-free art products.
Attach art table to wall with heavy gauge piano hinge and fold out of way when not using.
Thirty inches is a good working height for parents and kids. If you need extra light, get a gooseneck desk lamp.
Attach Shaker pegs to wall for hanging chairs out of way.
Install bins or cubbies with baskets to hold tools and art supplies. To save space, art supplies can be stored in rolling cart stacked with bins. Remember to keep bins and/or cubbies low enough for small children to reach.
Label bins/cubbies so everyone knows where everything goes.
Mount a holder for a roll of art paper.
Install dry erase board for creating, wiping and re-creating.
Hang art "clothesline" for displaying finished work.
