The Shaby Chic Cottage Chalkboard Party

A girl can always use another chalkboard! Check out the Shabby Chic Cottage for more fab chalkboards!
I got tired of looking at this ugly painting that was too small to be hanging above the couch all by its lonesome, so I made it into a chalkboard! :)

This hangs at the top of the stairs and often has my to-do lists on it.


This little chalkboard is in the kitchen and I use it to leave love notes for Todd. :)




This chalkboard is in the pantry and reminds we what to pick up at the grocery store.

Awesome! I just did this with what used to be a big framed canvas of monarch butterflies I found in my in-laws garage. I love it!! The kids love it too.

After seeing yours, I think I need to add a few more around the house. The pantry one is a brilliant idea. And they all look great!
