Twofer!

Hello friends!

This weekend I hung around the house
 and worked on making some things more efficient for our lifestyle. 
One of them being the need to be more ORGANIZED! 
I know everyone can relate to that one.

I purchased this cork board at Hobby Lobby a few years ago.
 I love the frame but the cork board was so thin
 you could not even put thumbtacks into hold anything.
 So I purchased a dry erase board and mounted it in the center.

It still had the same writing on it for a year. Seriously!
 This was not working for us. So hmmm...

Enter this plastic frame I found at Hobby Lobby on clearance for a buck sometime ago.

Why was it a buck you ask? Because it was NEON GREEN! 
This is after I painted it with my favorite Krylon spraypaint Jade!

I ripped off the dry erase board from the cork and hot glued it into the frame.

I am going to get glue some magnets and put it on the fridge!
I think since it will be front and center in the kitchen we will actually use it!
I LOVE this color!

So that leaves me with the cork board thing.
When I ripped off the dry erase board it ripped the flimsy cork board. 
Hmm...now what to do with this?
 It had a wooden backing and I had thought about making it into a picture frame. 
But lately I have been on this chalkboard kick
 so I spray painted the wooden backing with the chalkboard paint and it worked!

If you know me, you know I LOVE quotes
 so what a perfect platform for me and my quotes!


Here are a few examples of my chalkboard/quote obsession that I worked on this week!
I have had this little guy for years. He is the last remnant of my "chef" kitchen decor phase.

I made this for the hubs using clearance things from Hobby Lobby :)

Have a fabulous week!!!

**Update**
Here is the frame on our fridge.
 I made a list of all of the dishes we have on hand to make! 
SO helpful when we go to the fridge and think "ugh there is nothing to eat"
