With the upcoming school year fast approaching, organization products and tips seem to be flooding my social media accounts, and I'm loving every ounce of it!
For those of you who haven't had the chance to get to know me yet, I'm a bit of an organization nerd. I LOVE making lists! They just seem to make my days go so much smoother. And don't get me started on new planners, notebooks, and colorful pens!
>>A bit of an honest moment here, (and don't you judge me!) but I typically have about 3 planners I use all at one time. I have my 'master' planner, which my mom bought me for Christmas from Day Designer, a smaller on-the-go planner I bought to keep in my purse (since the other is SO heavy), and then the calendar built into my iPhone so that I can see both my schedule and Dane's schedule all in one place. I know, I may be crazy...but at least I'm crazy organized! ;)
Today I want to share with you my absolute favorite place for our family lists and reminders: my magnetic chalkboard wall!
This wall was 100% Dane's idea, and I love him a little more for it. :) We made this wall a short time after we had moved into our house, and it's been a favorite feature of ours ever since. We use it every week!
We put important notes there, a quick grocery list, inspirational quotes, a welcome message for our out of town guests, or even fun chalk art when we're feeling extra creative.
The best part about this magnetic chalkboard wall (other than the fact that it's magnetic), is that it was so simple to do! Here's what you'll need:
We first rolled on three layers of the magnetic primer, just to make sure our magnets were able to stick the way we wanted them to. Then we rolled on 2 layers of the chalkboard paint, and boom! Done! Told you it was easy to do!
Now go enjoy your new magnetic chalkboard wall. We'll chat again later. :)
