Exciting find number 1- Chalk board vinyl decal at the dollar store!!! We are all obsessed with vinyl decals and chalkboards right now so image my surprise when I stumbled across a combination of the two at the dollar store of all places.
I chose the fancy black version, but they had a classic green as well. (There are also non-chalboard options available too) Mine came two to a pack and 8 of those little round ones. I didn't know at the time what I was going to do with it, but I had a few ideas.
Obviously the title gives away what I decided on.... a refrigerator art gallery for the budding 2 1/2 year old artist, Hudson. I wish I would have picked up some magnetic frames while I was there, I wonder if they have big ones..... Anyway, I cleaned off the fridge door and stuck one of the decals on, then used chalk to officially declare it's new purpose.
I still had one that I had kind of wanted to put on my craft cabinet to list supplies to buy, but Hudson was so excited about drawing on it and couldn't quite reach the fridge one comfortably. He also couldn't seem to decide if he's right handed or left handed.
So I decided to put the second chalkboard somewhere a bit more child friendly. The decals are removable and don't damage the surface so you can stick them where ever you like, but once they are removed they won't stick again (nicely) so make sure you want it there before you apply.
The second one was put on the side of a cupboard on a little boy level.
So we will be spending our day creating masterpieces to fill our new gallery. You spend yours running to the dollar store and join in on the fun.
