Five Ways to Upcycle Old Stuff with Chalkboard Paint

Wooden hanger upcycled with chalkboard paintRemember my obsession with upcycling hangers? Yeah, I’m still on that kick.

Found on CRAFT, Jessica Wilson of scrumdilly-do! upcycles wood-bottomed hangers with chalkboard paint in order to make organizers for sewing works-in-progress.

It’s a tidy and efficient way to store unfinished sewing, since you can clip all elements of the project together in one place, and store it upright and out of the way on a hanging rod, but it’s also pretty cute, too, and so if you want to keep it on your doorknob so everyone can see it, then you can!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.
