Season the chalkboard paint by using a piece of chalk sideways and coloring the whole surface area. This step is important so that when you write on it the writing erases - if you skip this step your chalk words won't erase as well.

  1. Nice idea! This would work great hanging in our garage with all the tools & grates my hubby likes for his BBQ. It’s close to the kitchen and he could easily grab what he wants when he cooks. 🙂

  2. That is one great way to keep track of the BBQ utensils. Love your idea. Found you on Simple Homestead Blog Hop.

    1. Thank you so much Candy and thanks for stopping by.

  3. My husband could use one of these – he is always losing his grilling utensils! Thanks for sharing at The Blogger’s Pit Stop!

    1. Thank you Roseann – I totally understand, I used to do that with my keys until I made a hanging place for them as well.
