Monday "Getting Organized"
Here in Atlanta we have had nothing but rain, rain, and rain! For little Ellie, it's been very boring. She jut sits in her chipmunk-stalking room and gazes out the window wainting for the little chipmunks to come out of their holes. The good news is she did get to see a mommy deer and a baby fawn run through her front yard the other day. Very exciting for her. For me, with the rain, it's been non-stop HGTV, and I was forced to finally pick paint colors for my office, Hubby's office, and the guest room. Didn't actually make it to Home Depot for the paint but at least I know the colors that I'm going with. For Hubby, because of the rain, he got out of a boat load of yard work...so he is a happy camper.
Anyway, I cannot begin to tell you how much I love chalkboard paint! Love it, Love it, Love it!
Here House & Home's Suzanne Dimma painted a nice size wall in her kitchen. I thought about this.
And here, I thought about painting my pantry like what you see below. Great for writing your grocery list and such. Somehow or another, I was using chalkboard paint!
I even thought about doing a weekly calender like this. Great for organizing your busy weekly schedule. I strayed from this because of the taping involved. I don't think after striping our dining room we would have the patience for this project.
What I ended up doing was just painting a wall out in my mud room that I had Frank install to hide the ugly hot water heater. And no, I don't have a five year old. But you know what? You don't have to be in grade school to want draw on a chalkboard!
