"What am I going to do with my pile of old t-shirts? I'm going to wear them. The ones that are now retired are mostly used already. I've made bracelets, though not with jewels as shown here, children's clothes and pj's, and quilts beyond belief! It certainly is fun to be creative with something everyone has and most throw away! Thanks for more ideas."

My partner and I were planning on doing a half a chalk wall in our kitchen for notes and whatnot but I love the chalkboard fridge idea more than the wall. This is a super cool idea. Are chalk spray cans easy to work with? Is it messy when working with it?

This is super cool. This chalkboard paint comes in a spray can so it's makes this upcycled incredibly fast. Chalkboard crafts are cool and functional, I see so many creative things people draw on their fridges online. If you want your kids to enjoy some non-electronic play time this is all you need to get their creative juices flowing.

I love this idea, What a great way to give a old fridge a makeover. This is a clear complete step by step way to make your fridge a large chalkboard. I so need to do this on the fridge in our game room. A great way to keep score and after the game, just wash it off. So have to find the spray paint. Thank you so much for sharing this free makeover idea.

I really love this idea so much, and at first, it seems like it would be such a big undertaking and really time consuming but this tutorial is really simple. I want to try this out ASAP.
