I've painted many chalkboards and put them in vintage frames to sell at Bloom and Bee Swanky. All sizes, all kinds of frames. And I keep one in my kitchen. It usually had an extensive to do list on it. Every time I would look at it, I would get tired...too, too, too many to dos. So I cleared it of all the to dos and put on one of my favorite songs. I may forget to be somewhere, but now every time I look at the chalkboard, I am uplifted!
