Old Puzzle. New Life.

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen my tweets about our playroom quest.  
My husband, kiddos, and I put together a new playroom,
it is almost all done.  
We still have to work on the kiddos' cloffice, but that will be a project for another weekend when we get a weekend... again(?).  

While we were decluttering, we put aside books and toys the babies have outgrown {sighs} to donate; I saved three old wooden puzzles.  Two of the wood puzzles were missing pieces, I didn't want to throw them away; they had potential.  I thought, "CHORE CHARTS!" "These would make perfect chore charts." 
Okay... I haven't actually used the repurposed puzzles as chore charts just yet... but I will.
Here is what I did. I flipped those babies around and sprayed them with the chalkboard paint I had hanging out in my garage.  
I took some old fabric stripes and braided them {to make a hook}, and hot glued them on (once the spray paint was dry of course).
And done.
As I said earlier, the purpose of these repurposed puzzles was to make chore charts-- but we haven't quite done that... 
They made an appearance here...
And here...
As well as a ton of other last day of school pictures. 
My eldest daughter is crazy about Harry Potter, so she took some a ton of mugshots with her chalkboard. That girl is hilarious! 
What do you think?


  1. Very clever! I need to get me some of that clever. LOL! Your family is beautiful. I hope you all have a great summer.

    1. Thank you!! I'm sure you have plenty of clever! xo
