It's Monthly DIY Challenge time!
This month's theme was chalkboard and I knew exactly what I wanted to build! Do you remember when I went to the Haven conference in August? I was lucky enough to come home with a suitcase full of DIY supplies, including a magnetic chalkboard! I knew with the help of a few additions I could turn it into the perfect message board for our mudroom.
