"Tell us about the unique chalkboard/calendar. Is it custom?
Funnily enough, we found this wooden frame at a church rummage sale for $5 when we lived in NY. My husband didn't see the potential, but I promised I would think of something great to do with it. A few months later, I was looking for a big family calendar and ended up painting a piece of masonite board with chalkboard paint and fit it into the frame. It is one of my favorite things in the house. It helps keep us running smoothly."
The main area painting is done and I love the fresh feel it brought to the home. We went with Sherwin-Williams' Glimmer in a satin finish, and while it turned out a tiny bit more colorful than planned, I am in love with the look.
These are some torn out pages we used as we searched for the color that would give us the look we were going for.
We have finally finished a front yard overhaul and I have realized more than ever just how much you have to enjoy gardening if you want to have a truly incredible yard. Fortunately I am also realizing that gardening grows on you, and the more you do it, the more you know, and the easier and more fun it gets.
