Chalkboard Door and Doodling

I loved those advent calenders when I was little. Yanno, the ones where you open up a little cardboard door to reveal a chocolate Santa for December 15th and what-not.
Believe it or not, I didn't find one of the this year- I wasn't looking that hard either. So I guess I should say, One didn't appear before me. Instead I started a Christmas countdown on the new chalkboard door.

However, I think I've only updated the number about 8 times all month. It was 13 days til Christmas for about a week and a half.

I painted the lower recessed section of our back door with chalkboard paint. This door leads to the backyard, which we often use to come in and out of the house with. The gate to the end of the driveway is right by it. It needed some sprucing. Since our kitchen is half painted and has too many projects started and barely any completed... You only get a picture of the door for now. =)





  1. I totally love that idea! I've been wanting to do something with chalkboard paint and haven't figured out what yet. You gave me inspiration...but since i'm renting i'll have to paint a door and hang it on the wall instead!

  2. Cute posts Karli! Your home looks lovely. I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!

  3. thank you for spelling everything correctly! last sunday we went to breakfast w/some friends and on the wall was a sign "choriSo special" i asked the waitress if that was the same as choriZo............then we were in tehachapi and saw a sign "sourkraut", geez people!!

  4. Your door is so cute! And I love the count down to Christmas on the chalkboard pannel in your door. Great idea!

  5. Daring idea! Can you give more details about how you did this?

  6. Oooh, I love the door!

    I got one of those calendars for my girls this year. It was a fun treat each night. ;-)

  7. Looks great! It's really similar to the Dutch Door we made a while back (http://www.theshadesofpink.com/2009/12/room-month-dutch-door.html)
