Hi ya’ll! I took a tiny weekend break from blogging and now I feel a bit refreshed after all the excitement of finding and hauling home from the thrift store my new dining room chairs as well as a herman miller table for a steal! It took us three trips back and forth but it was worth it! I’ll post some pics soon once I get them painted and re-upholstered (by me of course!). Also over the weekend I came up with my new favorite martini recipe and will be posting that later in the week and I started painting a wall in the living room as well as our awful gold dining room chandelier a tomato soup red! I love it! I’m pretty sure my thrift store chairs will be painted the same orange-red so I’ll be consulting Pinterest asap.
I decided to do a chalkboard calendar this year because I needed something for the wall and my little lighted-leaf wasn’t working for me, see:
I made this chalkboard from an old garage sale painting I found last year and used it at our wedding. I keep it hanging up and write little messages on it from time to time; it’s a fun piece of interchangable art you might say.
What I did: I wrote in chalk the countdown to Christmas day on the 25th then I hung a string across each line and simply taped it to the back. I used tiny clothespins to hang ornaments, pom poms, flower poms, and pretty little bits of lace and tulle to match my white and gold color theme.
