Slow and steady wins the race, right?? Well at least that’s what they say. I am DEFINITELY slow when it comes to decorating. I am terrible at it and actually think I have a phobia about it. SERIOUS. People can never believe that a person who can craft and create is paralized when it comes to decorating…it’s true. I am terrible at it. Proof? How often do you see a home decor post here on the blog??
Well anyway I had a friend come and give me a boost.
Well here is the entry way into my house from the garage…this is an old picture….but see that chalk board. I was so happy when we bought it and the “K”. I knew I wanted it right there. Well…It took awhile to get hubby to hang it. Then it took longer to hang the “K” as I we couldn’t figure out how to hang it. Well Command Strips rescued me with that.
I was SO EXCITED! It was finally done. Then I went to write a message on it for my childcare parents…..UGH. The chalk board wouldn’t “write”. It was slippery and the chalk didn’t work. I spent time on the computer looking for suggestions….nothing came.
I figured it was worth a try. She said she bought it off a clearance rack and thought I should give it a try…so I did.
I was too lazy to take the chalk board down so did it where it hung. I shouldn’t have as it was stinky but oh well.
So did it turn out?
YES!!! I was so excited. It was over a year when I first bought the chalk board. UGH. What a journey over a simply chalk board!!
I think I should have wrote “FINISHED” on the chalk board!!
Anyway…little by little a few deocrating things are getting crossed off the list. When my friend came over she did give me a list of “to-do’s”…and I’ll get to them eventually…It’s hard when things have been so busy lately. Who knows…maybe I’ll be writing a blog post about those things NEXT year..after all, this simple fix took a year!!
