Years ago, one of the glass panels on my kitchen hutch was broken. (The incident involved my son and a broom, but that’s another story!) I kept meaning to have another piece of glass cut to fit, which shouldn’t have been hard, but it was just one of those things I never got around to.
Recently, it occurred to me that an easy (and useful) way to repair the hutch would to be to cut a piece of thin plywood to fit and paint it with blackboard paint. I had the plywood; I had the paint; no excuses!
Now, not only does it look nicer now, hiding some of the clutter of school supplies kept inside, but I have a handy memo board. We’ve used it for chore lists, school schedules, and just doodling. Right now, I’m writing our memory verses for the week on it.
