We have an electrial panel in our front hallway/ kitchen. It sticks out about 1/2″ from the wall and it’s long so it’s hard to cover it with a picture or anything else. I hate it. It’s really ugly. Not all panels stick out like this (so my electrican boyfriend tells me). Apparently only “older” homes have this. I’m just glad it’s flat.

Now it’s a chalkboard. It’s cute, functional and I love it. It’s also magentic, witch is pretty handy aswell. Total cost: about $9

All you need is come chalk paint, a paint brush, and maybe some painters tape. Apply 2-3 coats following the instructions on the can. Pretty easy.


I recently bought a lovely coat and every single button fell off, all 12. So if this has happened to you this winter I’ve made an illustrated¬†step-by-step guide on how to sew on a button.¬†Yes, many people lack this skill. You know who you are.

You can start with the needle in the back of the fabric but I prefer this way because it looks much neater.

Good luck!
