DooDoo Doodles

This morning I had a revelation. Yep, as I was standing in the kitchen filling up my coffee maker with water, doing the potty dance... because every morning I still forget to pee before making coffee, and without fail, end up doing the potty dance and then running to the bathroom.

TMI? Sorry.

Anyways, as I was perched on the toilet of my downstairs bathroom I realized I have never shared with you what might be my single greatest design feat in my house.

The chalkboard. Not the one in the kitchen (perhapsI have a chalkboard addiction?)


The one in my bano. The downstairs potty room. The one that every guest to my house usually visits at least once. To say this chalkboard gets some action would be an understatement!



Unsuspecting boys usually don't even notice the first time... they just comment on the box of chalk above the toilet (I really need to come up with some other cute way to hold the chalk, don't I?! Note to self - work on that) 

Oh but the ladies... the ladies notice. It's at the right height & distance from the porcelain throne that you can doodle to your hearts content. And the fellas join in on the fun once they figure out what's going on behind them!


I've had a few visitors remark that it might be the most fun idea for a bathroom that they have ever seen.

And yes, I have noticed that people tend to spend a bit more time in there, finishing up their quote or masterpiece of a drawing. Or maybe that's just their excuse for the extended bathroom time.

I love this idea!! I may have to copy it, but with a custom dry erase...

(I hate chalk...totally give me the heeby-jeebies...that may be the only reason I'm not a teacher! haha)

Ummmm ... hilarious! I love it!

I have friends that have a crossword puzzle book that sits next to the potty. I've been over at their house before for parties and spent tooooo much time in the bathroom due to that silly book. People have probably thought I had an upset stomach - YIKES.

Such a good idea! I never thought about having one in the bathroom, but it would be fun to see what people think of when they're in the loo.
