I am super excited to show you a project that I have been working on this week! My oldest is starting kindergarten and I wanted to put together a special place to keep track of his school papers, schedule and backpack.
I headed over to Ikea and found this magnetic chalkboard (It had so much potential and I knew I could make it work!)
I painted it to match my laundry room since that is where I wanted to hang it. I had some scrapbook paper that matched perfect so I adhered it to the back for a little more pop of color. I created the magnets using washi tape, clothespins and magnets. The frame was in a two pack from Ikea. I used more washi tap and then stamped my son's name along the bottom. Each year I am going to add his handprint to the frame to see how much he has grown! The can on the left I found at Michaels and I added some washi tape to that also. It will be perfect for holding pencils and extra supplies throughout the school year :-)
This chalkboard came with hooks on the bottom that are going to hold his backpack each day (so we won't be searching for it every morning!)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out! I doesn't take up any floor space and fits perfectly in my laundry room. My little guy is so excited to have a space all his own just to keep his school stuff!
Thanks for stopping by today!!
