You’ve seen ‘em before – those little wood-framed chalkboards with chalk attached by a length of twine, just waiting for someone to write something adorable. If you have one, it’s probably hanging in the kitchen.And, the kitchen is a fine spot indeed, but can you think of anywhere else decorative chalkboards
could serve their purpose while still looking great?We had some ideas.Greenhouse / Garden Shed
So many seeds, so little time to organize! That’s one way your chalkboard can come in pretty handy. It’s also a place where you can quickly jot down shopping lists, planting schedules and landscape planning ideas instead of getting your phone dirty trying to open Evernote.Bathroom
The perfect place for passive-aggressive notes! Here are some examples:- “Stop leaving your wet towels on the floor, you little animals!”- “Rinse out the sink! Or else!”- “Act your age, and FLUSH THE TOILET!”Or, you can leave nice, lovey-dovey notes instead, which are a much better way to start the day.Garage / Entryway
Here, you can leave all kinds of little reminders that can help as you’re coming and going throughout the day. They could be about the care of your vehicle (“Oil change tomorrow!”) or general lists that help jog your memory one last time before you get on the road.Game Room
This is probably more obvious than the others, but chalkboards are great for scorekeeping and list making in the game room.Front Porch
It might be true that the mobile device has killed the “pop-in” as a mode of community socialization, but the front-porch chalkboard signals that you’re keeping the dream alive by offering visitors a chance to leave a note in your absence.We hope you have fun with these new ideas, and use them to put your kitchen chalkboard to work in even more places around the house.
