Project Breakdown: Gentleman’s Club

Last week we shared the celebration of both our latest Rethink member along with Joel’s birthday with party decor themed around a gentleman’s club. As is with most of our small events, this party was put together using simple DIY tricks and various vintage finds.

It is sad to think with so many new products available, such as dry erase boards, kids today may not get to experience the “click”, “click”, and “SCREECH” associated with chalk. Or, witness the pounding of erasers and the clouds of dust left behind. But who’s to say all the fun is gone? There are many ways to keep chalk alive in your everyday life. Check out some of the ideas below for incorporating blackboards into your home, office and garden. Whether you like the look of white on a crisp black or if you find something nostalgic in the ghostly white wash left over after a cleaning – there is no doubt you’ll find an idea that suits your needs. If using labels – remember the more you have the higher the impact and the more organized…
