We have a sub-level in our house where the kids and all of their mountains of toys hang out. While it's not the prettiest of rooms; it is certainly the most used, and it has a bit of a cozy feel. Sorry about the dark pictures; it's a light-challenged area.
We re-did the basement.. oh... about 10 years ago and just never got around to staining the pocket doors. I thought for my birthday get together (And thank you all for all of the sweet birthday messages!) I would finally do something about them. There is nothing like doing what I like to call UPP's (unnecessary party projects.) to put the pressure on having people over!
So I decided since it had been so long and they were pretty beat up any way, chalk board paint was the way to go.
I really like how it looks, and the kids LOVE it.
Almost too much.
I learned to let the kids only draw on the one over the tile where the chalk dust can easily be cleaned up and not over the carpeted area. It was like a crime-scene dusting after the first day.
can you guess what room this is:) ?
I was also excited to get this in the mail the other day...
and even more exciting to open it up to this!!!!

There it is.. there's my name!!! Thank you to those of you who have already e-mailed me about it for your kind words.
I am gearing up for Kane County this weekend and then the Nada Farm sale a few weeks after that. I think June is going to be the month to put my feet up!
