Look at what I bought at the dollar store.With a little chalkboard paint and a new ribbon,I have a fun way to remind the boys
in my house that they have a chore to do.

Thanks for this wonderful idea.
I did buy a few of these and I did use a few but I couldn't think of anything else to do with them.

Our Dollar Trees are not compatible. I was inspired by you and stepped into mine last week to find nothing but absolute JUNK - and not the good kind. A little disappointing!

Jackie @ Save a Dime in '09 said...

Too funny! I bought a bunch of these last week. I've painted one for a little girl's bedroom (gift for a bday party)....of course I didn't take a picture...heck, I barely got it there dry! haha! I'm now following your blog...can't wait to check out things to come. smiles, Jackie

Lynn said...

Yet another great use for chalkboard paint. Knowing my husband though he would smudge out the chore words and write something fresh in it's place. Awesome idea though. Thanks.
My best, Lynn
