Most of the craft projects we do you ladies are involved in. Although you were not directly involved in creating this one, it came about because of you :) The kitchen counters were becoming dumping grounds, with all your art projects from school, your reports and newsletters, our bills and just stuff in general. I poked around online to try and find something that I could put in the kitchen area to control all the stuff. There were a few things that I liked, but nothing that I loved. I then came across something that I loved, but it was pretty pricey, so I decided to try and recreate it. I went to the store and bought all the items I thought I would need.
Next I painted the outside of the chalkboard. I wanted it to blend in the kitchen and was not fond of the natural wood look.

I also painted the boxes that were going to be affixed to the board. Again with a color that would look nice in the kitchen area. Once they were dry I placed them in the area they would be, using a magazine to test the height.
