How-To Project: Chalkboard Command Center

Posted 08/17/2018 by The Dimensions™ DIY Team

With just a handful of tools and a few easy steps, you can make this fun, great-looking command center. Let its clips hold all the things you want to keep at your fingertips — like this weekend's dinner party recipes or that important piece of mail.

  • Ideal for jotting important notes, reminders, shopping lists and weekly menus
  • Display favorite pictures, keepsakes and memories
  • Perfect for the kitchen, mudroom, laundry room or kids' bedrooms

All it takes is one 2' x 2' project panel, one 2’ x 4’ chalkboard panel, one 8' piece of cap moulding and a few metal bulldog clips.

Simply cut and glue your chalkboard or markerboard to the project panel, frame with the cap moulding and attach the clips. Fast and easy.

If you wish, you could always paint or stain your project panel and cap moulding before adhering the board as well.
