And here's a view of our most recent "celebration"!
Yes, I've been away from the blog for awhile. I think I was recovering from too much painting! But, the allure of putting new stuff on the walls was too much and today my focus was on making a new chalkboard for the dining room wall.
We've had a little chalkboard hanging somewhere since we moved into this house. It had a rooster on on a yellow background. (I had a rooster/yellow/red theme back in the day.) So, as much as I loved that little chalkboard, it just wasn't working with the new paint.
On one of my favorite blogs, Naptime Decorator, there was a how-to for a chalkboard. I searched the internet to find the stencil she used and kept my eyes open for a frame that would work with what I imagined. I was able to do both. So exciting!
The chalkboard is pretty easy to make (the directions will be on the craft page) and I am thrilled with the result. It's time to celebrate something! Where's the corkscrew.....?
