So to celebrate, how about some fro yo! I found some of our favorite yogurt on sale yesterday at my neighborhood Kroger store. (Wish I received compensation for that mention, but I don't.)
|Don't ya just love a good deal!?|
And now, for the reveal of the fantastic-deal-frame I referenced here.
I painted it a pretty shade of blue by mixing some craft paint that came in a big box of crafty stuff from my sweet MIL. Then, I added a back and was going to fill it in with wine corks to make a cool cork board. But, when I painted the backing, it started to peel. So, I punted on that idea, and did this instead...
I had some chalkboard paint from a project I did last year or the year before, so I measured the spot on my pantry door and taped it off with painter's tape. I had to use about 4 coats of chalkboard paint before it covered it really well. I'm sure I probably should have prepped the door somehow before I got started, but I'm not very patient, and I didn't have the time or patience to research it, so 4 coats isn't bad. It dried very quickly.
I plan on adding something else to the bottom of the door and putting something on the back of the door as well. I'll update you when it happens. I've wanted to do an organization station on this pantry door for years. I don't know what took me so long. I'm motivated to do some more things around the house, and I'm hoping to make it reflect a little more of me and our family.
Hope your Wednesday is wonderful!
