I covered the glass from the frame in white contact paper. I used contact paper vs. card stock because it would wipe clean if chalk got on it. My chalkboard paper was 8.5×11 and my frame opening was 11×13 so there was going to be a gap.
Then I attached my chalkboard sheet. I bought these a couple of years ago for the boys. They came in a 4 pack. They are 8.5×11 and are peal and stick. You can re-use them and move them over and over. I’ve moved them 3 times to different places in the house and they work great. The kids weren’t coloring on them much anymore, so I took them off of the wall, attached them to some wax paper and put them in the craft closet for a later use. For this project, I just used 1 sheet. It feels like contact paper.
That’s it! I am REALLY trying to get better about making a menu and sticking to it. I think it would help save money in groceries and would just make things easier vs. sitting with freezer open wondering what to make, what I feel like making, and scrounging to see what ingredients we even have! I have major problems with planning ahead. This WILL help. At least that’s what I keep telling myself. And it looks cute 🙂
