Ever since putting up this removable chalkboard, it has been covered with all sorts of drawings, doodles and messages.
The whole family enjoys writing notes and drawing pictures for each other. There was only one problem: no place to put the chalk and eraser. The kids could never find the chalk and I ended up just using a napkin to erase what was there. It was a pain and not a good solution. I started searching for a small, light container that I could use, but was coming up empty handed.
Finally on Friday I found the perfect solution. I was at Office Depot looking for something else, and I saw the school supplies was on clearance. Enter this little beauty for $1!
I know it's bright pink, but I did what any other self-respecting blogger would do and pulled out the good old spray paint.
A few hours later it was good to go! I used some command strips to hang it on the wall.
It's the perfect size for the eraser and chalk and now everyone can find what they want easily.
Here's a zoomed-out view. It sits in this little nook right when you enter the kitchen so I don't have to worry about anyone bumping into it. Now to swap out the light switches and plate for some white ones...
p.s. Besides Office Depot, Target was also having 70% off school supplies, so now's a great time to stock up on essentials for next year.
