Chalkboard progress...

I thought "Berry Pink" was a definite...but the "Bahama Breeze" by Krylon caught my eye as it is the accent color in my kitchen, dining/family rooms, and that is where this chalkboard will be displayed. (makes sense to put it in the HUB of our home where the family will see it most often) I was nervous about the "purple" at first, but it all worked out and the Bahama Breeze covered ...after I fussed over the drips from the can . You can see the result on the paper towel. In my opinion, the Rust-oleum paint went on much smoother and was so much easier to apply. Oh well, I NEEDED the color! and...for those of you that "know" me, the Berry Pink will be well used and loved! :)

If you are LOVIN' this photo collage, you can get it here, and don't forget to look at this, for the brushes, numbers, and font that I used as well. I just love these Girls!

Take a Look at this GEM!!!

So, a client/friend of mine turned me onto a great "barn" in Visalia. Yes, it's an old barn with so many treasures that it's hard to take it all in and I had to walk through 4 times. They have all kinds of consignment goodies and I can't wait to make another trip to see what I missed when I start my 5th trip around "The Barn"! For now, I'm on a mission to make a magnetic chalk board out of this frame...can you believe it was only $12?...okay, focus Lisa~ Check back for the result! (Sorry I've been MIA. So many exciting things going on and we've had a very busy summer. Oh and I'm gonna be a Granny! Yeowzers!!!) So many more FUN things to come having a little one around again. My first BABY is having a BABY. is Good! :)
