Chalk

Much to the Hubs dismay I want to redo our living/dinning room. All new furniture - couch, chairs, tables, console...you name it! I may have mentioned this once or 500 times before... :)  I talk of it often and have pretty much predetermined all the pieces we need to make it perfect! (Such a girl right?!) Alas, I'm receiving some resistance but I have an idea on how I can update our pad for the time being.

Chalkboard!!!!

We have a thin wall, like the upper right, just by our kitchen. I think a coat of chalk board paint would do it good - maybe a project for this weekend!!!! Throw a frame on top, why not!!! (I have a great one too!) Do you ever do little projects to update the space and make you feel a tad better about the rest of what is going on? Will my Landlord hate me? - I think I might do it!!! (If I do, I'll share B/A!)

*Pinterest is my fav!!!

  3. My mom years ago begged my dad to spray paint one of our doors in chalk. Best decision ever! I'd love to do a whole wall, it's really cute (and useful too!)

  5. My fiance and I talked just yesterday about rearranging furniture because I'm so bored of our living room. Unfortunately we came to the conclusion that it only works the way we have it. This would be a great little change! I loveeee chalkboard paint!

  15. I paint that same size wall in our house with chalkboard/magnetic paint & i lurvvee it! Its not as fancy & more fun since i put a montly calendar up there, notes & to-do's. If you dont want the commitment of paint they do have chalkboard contact paper that is easily removable!
