I love the simple idea of adding a space to write notes or make lists without cluttering up the front of the fridge with magnets and paper. My husband had the idea of using a spare drawer front that was conveniently located in our basement. Since the drawer front is already "framed", I taped off the outside perimeter with painters tape and got out the chalkboard paint.
It didn't take too much difficulty to paint the door, and I think the waiting time was the hardest part (I am an impatient painter). After two coats of chalkboard paint I peeled off the blue tape to reveal my masterpiece.
Now all I need is to do is to mount the door on the wall and voila! A fun little project, and my blank wall is becoming not so blank anymore.
