Chalkboard Decor for the ADD

No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to escape the ADD! That good ol’ attention deficit decorating is like a monkey on your back I swear.

I’ve had this blank space above my entry console that I’ve tried to fill with large pictures, clocks, small animals, cobwebs, dirt………you get the point. The cobwebs were doing a really good job of filling the space but they just weren’t doing anything for the feel of the space, not to mention you can only take so many “are you going to clean that” comments from the MIL. : )

Any who…nothing really seemed to be perfect for the space.

I wanted something that would

1. Fill the space

2. Was changeable

3. Could move with me and be used in other places

4. Was Cheap Affordable

I decided a moveable DIY chalkboard would be P.E.R.F.E.C.T. I could decorate it for every holiday, change it any time I wanted (which the ADD would love) and take it with me anywhere I went.

I know it’s only been up for a week but I’m already itching to erase it and decorate it for the next holiday/season! So far, I’m in LUH-ve though and couldn’t be more happy with it, not to mention the total cost of the project was about $12!!! Twelve dollars to fill a 52X72 space, yes please and thank you.

Well it doesn't look like I can spell today. I spelled blogspot wrong three times.
Let me try one more time.
