Chalkboard Paint!

Kelly and I like to stay organized. Shocker, I know. We have this awesome chest freezer in our garage that was gifted to us from Mr. and Mrs. Kasych to help us get used to buying sale items in bulk and storing for later.

Our chest freezer filled up quickly with great buys on ground meat, Italian Ice and lots of other goodies. The only problem is that the items that work their way to the bottom are often lost and or forgotten about. I had suggested to Kelly one day that we just make a list of the items that we had so that we wouldn’t forget what we had, even if we had to dig for it.

Kelly had the AMAZING idea of just painting an area of the wall with some chalk board paint! This way we can update the board every time we add or subtract things from the freezer.  We picked up a small container of the chalk board paint from the Depot and then some chalk from Micheal’s. I had to use two coats of the chalk board paint to get full coverage and it looks great!

As a matter of fact it looks so good that while I had the roller and the paint out we put a small amount inside on of our pantry doors. I mean we weren’t using that space for anything else so why not?

Here’s a few shots of how it turned out:



Switch it out

I love our shelves in our hallway and I wanted to give them an update ( I love changing things around, it’s a free way to give the space a new feel)

I found these amazing prints online and then went to my stash of frames up stairs to frame them.

This is my favorite, sorry I have no idea how to get the flash to not show up on the picture and our hallway is so dark!

Love the fall art!

This one makes me happy

This is Matt’s favorite

I love the “new” look, what a great free project!

Fall Wreath

After my awesome wreath for Halloween I needed to find a new one for fall. I decided to make a rag wreath, pretty simple but looks cool.

I found an old wire hanger and had my strong husband make a circle out of it. Then I found fall-ish fabric and cut out strips.

Then just tie around the hanger, no pattern needed just make it fun.

See it’s that easy! What do you think?
