Ready to take on something a little more challenging? Similar to #3, you can paint a chalkboard right on the wall above a desk space.  This would be great in a home office or even in a kids play room! See this pin on how to make painters tape your best friend!

This is a little more permanent – but an amazing idea. Imagine being able to open a cabinet and see all your cooking notes right there as you grab your EVOO.. With some handy-man help with detaching the cabinet door and some painters tape this is a DIY-er’s dream.
