I've been meaning to write about this little project for a while now. It wasn't much work, practically none at all really, but it has been awesome. I got the idea from an old issue of Cookie magazine (well they are all old now-- damn you, tanking magazine industry!). I just slapped some chalkcloth--oil cloth that works like a chalk board--that I got on etsy, cut it to fit, and because I couldn't be bothered to take it off again I just mitered the corners with some glue. Done and done. Now it's someone's job to draw the place settings for dinner (sometimes mine) which makes those 15 minutes before dinner enjoyable rather than the low blood sugar hell they usually are.
