Fall has given me a little boost of creativity around my house. This weekend alone could have provided fodder for at least 3 blog posts! But alas, I do not have time to post about the caramel apples I made with my kids or the Halloween decorating we did. Although, I did let them have a little more freedom outside this year. My bushes are covered in that fake cobweb and big black spiders! It's cute - Mums and pumpkins just will not do for this crowd anymore!
I did do one very necessary project that I thought I'd share. I have been forgetting A TON of really important things lately. Older age, too busy, distracted by other things in life - not sure. So, I needed something that I could record these things and see them right when I leave the house!
|Taped around the outside of where I wanted to paint. For this, I used an old frame that I removed the glass and picture from. I just held it on the wall and drew around the inside of the frame. Then I painted chalkboard paint right on the wall. |
|Removed tape - a little paint did seep through but that's okay because I'm adding the frame.|
|Hung the frame. This allows me to remove the frame and clean the chalkboard right on the wall!|
|And there is a little ledge for my chalk built right in!|
|I also added hooks for my keys and the dog's leash. LOVE!!!|
