Make African Rules Great Again!

Today, my fellow bloggers will be writing about the top 10 African House rules. Their posts will be great. So great. You will love them. I, however, because I am so amazing and creative, will not be doing that, I will be standing by the wayside, waiting to prettify the rules they’re writing that you’ll want to be part of your own home. Now, or one day…

So, let’s get started with ideas on how to make the rules look cool, and the people who can do it for you. Whether you want to frame them in the house, or wear them on a hoodie, the following people will get it done!!

Do you want them written on… a Chalkboard?

You can also DIY! You can buy a piece of cardboard, or stiff board, and paint it with blackboard paint. Blackboard paint is available at Bamm Stationers. If you want fancy lettering, you can call Tito the chalkboard artist. His number is 0772 636 998.


Grab random pieces of wood and make the rules there:
