That’s the only name I could think of for this little project, and it involves a door and is sort of in the organization family, so it will have to do!
I wanted a place where the Mr. and I can write down things we need to pick up at the grocery store, Costco, etc. and I decided that the door to the little kitchen pantry cupboard was the perfect spot.
My initial idea was to use a chalkboard, but that would have involved either buying a chalkboard, or chalkboard paint and the Mr. informed me that he does not like the feel of chalk/chalkboards. So, that would have meant buying a chalk pen. Too much work for what was supposed to be a quick little project, so I decided to go the dry erase route instead.
I bought a picture frame from Dollar Tree, along with some dry erase markers. I put a light coloured scrapbook paper into the frame, attached some yarn to tie onto the marker and hung it on the door.
You can see some blue clothes pins peeking out in the bottom of the photo. This is because I decided that I wanted a place where we could stick receipts and whatnot instead of jumbling them up underneath our limited fridge magnets.
I have a bunch of plain wooden clothes pins left over from a bridal shower game that I had done a few months ago, so I just painted them in an ombre sort of effect and stuck them to the door underneath the picture frame.
So here is my little “door organization center” in all it’s glory!
I really like how it looks, and I know that it will be very useful for us as well. I love all things organization and am slowly trying to have a home where “there’s a place for everything and everything in it’s place”. I just function better that way and walking into clean, organized spaces just makes me happy!
On a side note, I took a leisurely stroll through Dollar Tree this morning and I was really impressed!! The one I went to used to be a Dollar Giant but was recently renovated. I love the new store SO much more. They have a lot of great stuff and it’s so much more organized (see, there it is again! haha). I will definitely be going back in a few weeks to gather some fall decor, and I can’t wait to see what they have at Christmas! (Although we’ll just pretend I didn’t use that word since we’re only 8 days into August.)
Anyone else love organizing, like me? And who else can’t enough of dollar stores?
