2 DIY projects we’re going to try this week + 1 that worked!

Project #1: “repurposed chalkboard for kitchen”

Today I finished a successful DIY that I wanted to share. I took an old frame from Ikea that I have had since college (yay repurposed old stuff!) and took out the poster. Then, I cleaned the plexiglass off and painted it with a roller and 3 coats of chalkboard paint. After it dried for several hours, I placed the plexiglass and cheap cardboard that the frame came with back into the frame and snapped it all together. It looks great and will soon be hanging in our kitchen!

Future projects…

1. How fun are these rope necklaces from honestly wtf blog ? Stay tuned. Gotta get to the hardware store.

2. Also, if I order enough things online….I will have enough cardboard and then…..I can make little cardboard houses / forts with the little lady! She loves hiding and playing peek-a-boo, so this is right up our alley.
