Wow, where was I going with this??? Oh yeah the chalkboard wall... years and years ago we had lunch at the cutest little restaurant in Estes Park... in the middle of winter... and we were the only customers. Just Chris and me. And all of their tables had chalkboard tops and they had a chalkboard wall. Well I've wanted one EVERY since... (by the way, the meal was delicious, the waiter hilarious, and the company incredible! now if only we could remember the name of the cafe!!)
So without any further adieu.... the new chalkboard wall!
chalkboard paint: Lowe's several years ago for another project
*edited 7/27/2012: this is probably one of my most economical projects to date as the quart can of chalkboard paint has now been used to paint TWO chalkboard walls as well as DOZENS of vinyl labels for containers plus a minimum of 36 tags for baskets & gift cards.
basket: first one I ever wove
bag: fabric leftover from a project... turned inside out
garlic: from this past summer's CSA
clock: brought back many moons ago from Chris' deployment to Riyadh
plant, bucket and rod: Ikea last year w/ a gift card
So as you can see we are using, reusing, and repurposing what we already have. It is so much fun seeing a room come together and knowing that my family loves it as well!
Hope you have a great weekend! Stop back by to see how things are progressing... :)
