I've been brainstorming ideas for how to hang things on the front of my fridge. I didn't want anything that would leave a residue and I wanted to have the option to easily remove it. I specifically wanted a calendar for my fridge. I finally decided that a decal would be the perfect solution. I found some decals that I really liked on Etsy at looksugar. I liked their chalkboard decals but I wondered how clean it would look after I wrote on it? I wondered if it would work on my fridge? I decided to go with a narrow house shaped chalkboard calendar because I knew the dimensions were perfect for one of my fridge doors.
The funny thing is a couple days after I ordered this calendar I was moving a magnet around on the side of the fridge and accidentally started to drop it. It ended up sticking to the front of the fridge. I was confused and upset that I actually believed my husband and the Realtor and didn't just try a magnet myself. Apparently the magnet they used wasn't a very strong one. What I've learned is that some stainless steel refrigerators are magnetic and some aren't it depends how much nickle and other random metals are used in the mix. I still ended up getting the chalkboard decal calendar but much to my surprise it didn't look like a calendar at all. Apparently the image on looksugar is giving you the idea that you can write on it to make it look like a calendar. By the way if you get a decal make sure you lay it out and put something heavy onto to help flatten it out from shipping.
So I contacted the company and asked why what I purchased is called a calendar. They were very quick to apologize and concluded there was a communication problem. This company really went out of their way to make sure I was a happy costumer and asked me what the dimensions were of my fridge.
They customized a calendar for me!
They even sent some chalk pens which I highly recommend. They write smoothly and erase with a damp cloth. Don't get the extra fine chalk pens, they don't write as smooth and tend to splatter because of the texture of the decal. Here's an example of the two pens:
I'm really impressed with the quality of the decal. It's not flimsy and cleans with ease leaving no chalk build up behind.looksugar customize a calendar for me but they also sent along my second favorite decal that I could give away to one of my lucky readers!
