Black Board Fix…

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.

When my friend came over she suggested this….Black-board-2

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!!

    I still have pictures sitting waiting to be hung up a year and a half since moving. Some of the inertia is deciding which ones will go up, not as many walls as before, a few will have to eliminated. And then we decided to rearrange rooms so the pictures would be out of place anyway.
