Many, many days I am disappointed to find out that my fiance and I have failed to coordinate our schedules…he gets home too late for dinner or someone forgets to take out the trash… Whatever the reason we needed a solution! Near our garage entrance we had some unused wall space that I decided to turn into an organization station by using a weekly chalkboard calendar!
Of course, I made it a DIY project by using some spray Chalkboard Paint and some old closet door mirrors. First, I spray painted the mirror and frame with chalkboard paint. Once it was dry I used some vinyl letters in place of stencils. I measured the space for which I wanted my letters and I stuck the vinyl letters right onto the chalkboard. I made sure to let the chalkboard paint cure for a couple of days or it would have peeled off the freshly applied chalkboard paint. Some painters tape finished off my edge.
Next, I rolled on some white latex paint I had on hand. It took a few coats to cover, but I made sure to peel off my vinyl letters and tape before it dried completely. I carefully removed the letters by lifting the edge with an exact-o knife and slowly peeling them off.
TA-DA! So unbelievably easy and so unbelievably worth it I even decided to make a second one for notes.
