My son had a trike a thon at school to raise money for St. Jude's and I didn't want to forget to load the scooter and grab his helmet.
I then had an "AHA" moment and thought about putting some kind of system on the door. I didn't want to paint it because I didn't want to ruin a door that I would have to fix the next time we move. I was in Jo Ann's the other day and came across this...
It is 2 sheets of Chalkboard Vinyl from Die Cuts With A View. The sheets are big too....39.25" x 23.25". I knew when I saw them that I could cut them to fit the inside of my door. I had a 50% off coupon and I only paid $9.99.
Here is what I did to measure the door.
I used some brown paper I had to trace around the inset of the door. I did this more for the arch that is in the inset, because I could measure the sides and bottom.
I cut it out and placed it up there one more time to make sure it fit. Now I'm ready to cut out my vinyl.
After I was confident that it was going to fit, I placed it on the back of the vinyl and cut it.
Here it is after the vinyl was cut out and hung. I also went ahead and cut out some vinyl for the square at the bottom of the door just to give it a complete look.
I wanted to put a title on it just to make it more cute and I came up with this.
Before You Go....
There are times when we have to return papers to school or I don't want to forget the shopping list, so I put a clip I had bought a long time ago on the door. I used the 3M picture hanging strips to adhere it to the door.
I am so excited how this turned out and love that I won't ever forget anything again!
I know this will get so much use. My husband wrote our son a sweet note this morning on the door before he left for work. It was such a sweet surprise when we were leaving for school.
Now that I see this little hallway, I think I am going to have to make a cute rug to go in the hallway.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
