When we first moved into our house, my husband and I had toyed with the idea of turning our fridge into a chalkboard fridge.  What could be cooler than writing up your to-do list, drawing random pictures, and leaving each other sweet messages on one of the more frequently used appliances, yes we like to eat.  But because of our basement renovation, anything fun like that had to be put to the backburner.  Well guess what??  Our basement is DONE as of this week, so those things that used to be at the bottom of our list can make their way on up, woohoo!   And what perfect timing that Emily from Sassy Smolak just had a post this week about her DIY chalkboard fridge, which by the way, looks TOTALLY cool!  So I decided to search high and low on the web for some more chalkboard inspirations, and this, my friends is what I found… Enjoy!

P.S.  Sorry if I haven’t checked out your blogs lately, it’s been a long week and an especially long yesterday…  Long story short, flight was delayed going from Detroit to Chicago, now staying overnight and blogging from my hotel room (that’s how much I love you), and finally heading back home tomorrow!  So excited for the weekend, all I’m going to be doing is RELAXING.  Then it’s off to Orlando on Monday I go… can’t wait to meet up with Sonja from SoNgDesigns!
