A Chalkboard Makeover

I bought this chalkboard at Garden Ridge a few years ago. At first I liked the fat little chefs, but over time, I got tired of them. 

These were taken before blogging, and obviously it was around Thanksgiving. :)

All I did was buy three different pieces of scrapbook paper, cut it to size and then I just used double stick tape to attach it right on top of the little chefs. 

Easy peasy! You could even switch out the paper for different holidays. 

Such a simple update. I really liked having this chalkboard in the kitchen and I'm glad I could continue using it.

Edited to add: I recently did another makeover for this chalkboard and you can see it HERE

One quick note...Do y'all remember my FAVORITE THINGS post? Well, I've been working on a Favorite Things Part Two and hope to get it posted next week, so be sure to check back for that. I have some fun summer items, beauty products, and even a baking item that I think you'll really like. :)

Hope you all have a great day!

  3. What a great idea! I like how you were able to use something more generic than the chefs and add style to your chelkboard. Such an easy change too.
