Take an old cabinet door and paint the center with chalkboard paint, leaving the raised or recessed outside panels as a decorative border. You can add monograms or text to the panels to personalize this as a gift, or just leave it plain. These make great housewarming gifts and are a fun way to display what”s for dinner, the shopping list, or even to use as a greeting for house guests. If you”re not into using chalk, try applying a magnetic paint instead for a cute magnetic memo board to hang in any room.
