{Chalkboard Ideas}


I’m a big chalkboard fan…

I have then set here and there throughout this cottage

and recently created a couple new projects

involving the beloved chalk

The Chalkboard Clipboard


northern cottage chalk clipboard - Copy

which includes a cute little mini pennant too


This has come in so handy already with lists and to-do’s to wrap up the school year and get us geared up for SUMMER!


  Look around your house for containers you don’t use in their current state anymore…

like this TAPE CRATE (ha!)

I don’t think we need to store our ‘tapes’ anymore

unless it is for washi tape!

By adding a fresh coat of chalkboard paint – it becomes brand new and usable again


Another project is

THE Chalkboard Windowbox Planter

Summer Re-do
to be shared here soon!
