things that happen while husbuddy is away

ok, so husbuddy was gone for a weekend trip last weekend. i may have started/half completed like 5 different projects at once. i couldn’t just start one and finish it…nope of course not! let’s just say i have a sickness.

anyway, here is one of my projects! a giant chalkboard in kitchen!

ok, so maybe i’m about ten years too late on the chalkboard bandwagon. i read somewhere talking about trends, that if you can see the “bandwagon” you’ve already missed it… ha!

oh well. i still thought it would be fun to have a giant one! and it’s my house, so i’ll do what i want. take that trend police!

chalkboard during

late at night painting does not equal good pictures…. but a little primer and a little chalkboard paint later… chalkboard almost after

granted, middle of the day isn’t much brighter in this kitchen! some day soon…those cabinets are going to be white! i promise!

the plan is to wrap the edge of the chalkboard in trim to create a picture frame around it. but that means we have to own a saw, buy some trim, and nail it up there. it may happen this summer… until then, i’m just going to enjoy my almost-finished-too-late-on-the-trend “imperfect chalkboard”

chalkboard whats next mom and these two, i can just feel the stares, “whatcha going to do next, momma?”

ha, oh sweet babies, just you wait and see.

do you do any projects while your spouse is out of town? hee hee. i remember one time my mom painted our living room pink while my dad was on a ski trip or something. guess we know where i got it…lol

    I painted our living room a golden yellow color while Rich was away. I’m currently thinking about repainting our bedroom. The color I chose is too dark…I need to lighten it up. He will be traveling to Florida this summer…perhaps I’ll get into a little mischief then…He would be totally surprised!
