Refrigerator Overload

fridge door

This isn’t so bad.

There are times you can’t even see a hint of blue showing through!

And although I love all the notes, and photos, and art work, and awards, and alphabet magnets, and other random wonders that get stuck on to what is known as refrigerator wasteland  …  I can’t take another visual addition.

And honestly, I might have a stroke if I ever saw it empty …

almost as if we had been robbed!

But I fear it is time for a new solution .. heck, we may find something with extreme monetary value under all that other visually stunning stuff.

{ highly doubtful, but not completely unreasonable or wishful thinking, right? }

Here’s a few ideas I found via internet…

Option #1 – chalkboard paint?

{ p/c remain simple }

Not bad … but I fear the chalkboard could cause some visual overload as well and it’s not as easy to stick stuff too, not to mention the chalky mess & build up.

Option #2 – cork board wall?:

meh … not a fan of this option either.

Option #3 – the best of all three?:

{ p/c It’s Written on the Wall }

um… can you say YAY!?  Houston, we have a WINNER!

I love love LOVE this idea!

It’s like a mini gallery of chalk, cork and magnetic possibilities!

And it doesn’t feel cluttered or visually abusive.

I canNOT wait to get started!

Do you have a special “creative space” for all the notes, art & treasures?
