I am a project-aholic.
I almost always have a few irons in the fire and if I don’t have some sort of project going, I get anxious.
Today was one of those days where I was totally itching to do something.
So while the kids were taking a little nap,
I whipped out a can of chalkboard paint that had been sitting in the garage and gave a wall in the kitchen a couple coats of black.
I was in such a rush to ‘do something’ that I forgot to take a before picture.
The wall that I painted used to be cream, so it’s a bit of a shock to walk in to the kitchen and see black!
But I think I’m liking it.
To break up some of the black, I hung a metal perpetual calendar (Joyworks),
which I think happens to be pretty dang cute.
And I love that I now have a place to write the weekly dinner menu.
The kids are pretty crazy about getting to draw on a wall too
Oh, and just an FYI, chalk pens do not work well on chalk board paint on walls.
It doesn’t wipe off! I learn that lesson the hard way
Good old fashioned sticks of chalk seem to work best!
