Come Use My Can.

So, my old pantry door:


I couldn't part with it. I just couldn't.

The Daddy-o suggested trading it with a different door. "How about the bathroom?" He said.

Silly Daddy. A chalkboard, inside a bathroom?

Wait a second. . . this is pure genius. PURE GENIUS.

Note: trading a door by oneself, whilst trying to break a swearing habit is not recommended.

But do you see the beauty of this? I can now leave my family and guests secret messages, only to be seen, door closed, by the potty-sitter.

What am I suggesting? Read on.






If only I could really write this well.








The possibilities are endless.

Oh my goodness Mandi. You are SO funny. I can't even pick my favorite.....I'm rolling on the ground here. You're great.

Lois@frugaldecormom said...

I'm sitting here reading all that you wrote and cracking up! My son keeps asking what's so funny. I especially love the one about little boys peeing haphazardly! I need this one for my boys bathroom! Thanks for sharing!

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

You are a genius! I love this idea. Smells travel is my favorite. My son had dry erase markers in his apartment bathroom where guests would leave him messages on the mirror.

Kristi said...

Ha ha. Thanks for the laugh! The last one is my fave!

Audra said...

Genius! Sheer Genius! I would imagine this may cause guest to dawdle a while longer in the potty just for the use of chalk board!

Maybe it's good I am not your neighbor and don't have to use the bathroom and see the thin walls message. I might just die. :) Fun idea.

Teri said...

Thanks a lot, Mandi. Cliff just told me to "shut it over there" because I'm laughing louder than his hockey game. Way to get me in trouble. (Don't worry. I blamed you.)

;)

Heidi@TheCraftMonkey said...

Oh man! Thanks great! I hope you'll leave a piece of chalk so they can write you back!

Heather@The Black's Best said...

Your right. A chalkboard in the bathroom is a great idea! Especially when you can come up with such side splitting comments!

Daddy-O said...

Hilarious!

Kristina @ A Home Made by Kiki said...

Just came across your blog the other day because someone suggested you were hilarious...lol! Love the bathroom comments...makes me seriously consider a chalkboard in my bathroom! :)

Felicity said...

Okay, that really is pure genius. That kind of thing would go well in my house. I can't believe how hysterically funny all of those ideas are! The little boys one...so true! We've got three little men in our house. Yeah....

I wish I could come visit you, just to see and use your bathroom door!

Love your blog, by the way - especially the header! * snort *

I'm featuring this post on my blog tomorrow - just a heads up. :D

We used to have a sign in our bathroom that said "My aim is to keep this bathroom clean. Your aim will help."

slommler said...

Ha! Thanks for the laugh this morning! Great bathroom messages!!!! You could just leave chalk near the door and let people write messages to you!!! Just a thought

This CRACKED me up!!!! Thank you so much for the Monday morning laugh :)

MMB Creations said...

That is perfect. I enjoy reading your blog because I never know what I will find.

Emily said...

Those are so funny! I can imagine people going in there not knowing you put something on the door and they just start laughing! What a good idea.

Cathy M~(checkitoff) said...

this is super fun! are you going to turn over the chalk to the munchkins? we wanna know what they have to say!! {thanks for your sweet comment about my mom~she battled breast cancer last year while my dad battled prostrate cancer. the new cancer is non Hodgkins lymphoma and she will start chemo next week. prayers please?} hugs, Cathy

Spencer & Lorilyn Crum said...

That is soooo awesome!

You know what I secretly think? Why don't they just put chalkboard paint on the stalls in kid's restrooms at schools, then at least you could erase whatever they wrote at the end of the day, right???

Leserlee said...

LOL!!!! I love it. Now I'm off to the Home Depot for some chalkboard paint. Not really, but that would be awesome, hunh?

HOLY MOLY! I Agree this is PURE GENIUS. Found you via A Girl and a Glue Gun, and I am HOOKED. ♥ DavesWife

Carrielyn said...

OH. MY. I should just learn not to drink beverages while reading your posts. Laughing, followed by snorting, then spewing icewater on computer is not good for it.

Leca Unplugged said...

Those are genius. I'd be in there scribbling all the time. I love it. There is nothing like a good laugh while you're on the throne.

but she has some amazing printables that are great for like printable fabric and such, fun ideas. anyway i love your blog, keep up the amazing work!

Melissa Lester said...

Those are so funny! I got a kick out them and knew my boys (ages 9 and 11) would find them hysterical. Come to think of it, my husband would probably like these, too. They love the potty humor. Your boys must think you rock!

Congrats on your TCB feature! You do wonders with moulding.
