A pocket door would be perfect here, but would be a more expensive project than I want. I finally just took the door off and put up the chalkboard I’ve been picturing there for months!
I took a large piece of Masonite we had sitting in our garage and painted it with chalkboard paint. I did 3 coats. With the help of my sweet husband, we screwed it right to the wall. Masonite is inexpensive and pretty light! It can also be moved if I choose in the future. I added the cute chicken wire magazine rack for the daily mail, coupons and now the top one is just for grocery, menu, and recipes on my two week menu.
