I am constantly looking for ways to move stuff off of my desk and onto the walls to make everything look more clean and organized. I hate clutter. Despise it actually, so I am constantly reworking my space to make things easier on me.
When my mother-in-law was here we went on multiple Michales trips, and on one I found a great wooden frame and decided I could make a really cool organizational tool with it. So, I came up with a really easy chalkboard checklist that I absolutely love!
After using Martha Stewart chalk paint on the wooden picture display, I really wanted to use it on another project, and this piece of wood was perfect! We’re doing a travel theme in our living room, and I knew that the green color would not only work with my office chair but it also would go really well with the theme of our room.
- Martha Stewart Chalk Paint (I used green)
- Martha Stewart Wax
- Chalkboard spray paint
- E6000 glue
- Wooden frame
- Thin piece of plywood
- White chalk marker
I used two coats of the green paint then used a coat of wax to seal it, and let the frame sit for twenty-four hours to completely dry. For the back I bought a thin piece of plywood and cut it with a saw (my very first time and it went very well!), then spray painted it with chalkboard paint. I let it sit for two hours and then used E6000 glue to attach it to the already painted frame. I let it cure for 24 hours, and sat a heavy phone book and multiple heavy books on top of the frame to keep everything in place.
Once it was dry I used my white chalk pen and wrote down my blogging checklist for the day, week, month, and year in each individual square. It is the perfect way to organize my blog checklist every day!
What I love about this frame is that you can pretty much use it for anything. You can use it for a grocery list, meal planning, or anything else that you need to keep a reminder of!
How do you organize your schedule?
