Chalk It Up

image

We finally completed our chalkboard. The girls worked together on it.

If you know my kids; you can probably guess that there was quite a bit of yelling. It turned out great in the end. I love the different fonts.

We haven’t hung it yet. It is really heavy, and we need to get the proper hardware.

It is the best buck we have ever spent. It sure is a far cry from this old mirror…

The hubby and I went to Goodwill Saturday afternoon. We had a successful treasure hunt.

We got this demilune table for $10. We are going to paint it with blue chalk paint and apply an antique wax finish to give it an aged look. Stay tuned for that!

Here are some of the smaller treasures we got at half price…

         Light house lantern, white bowl $4

My kids may not always get along perfectly but they are currently engaged in a singing contest. I really hope they grow up to be best friends and live…

(I got this little wooden sign at a garage sale last summer for $1.)

Here is one final look at the awesome chalkboard that was repurposed from an old mirror.
