It's another edition of How-To Tuesday with Christie over at These are a Few of My Favorite Things. I have to admit, I was really looking forward to today and even spent some time on Sunday doing a bunch of small projects so I would have a plethora of ideas to choose from for today's little session.
But as in all things in my life, it is not perfect, it is not complete and it is not super pretty. Give me another hour of free time and the supplies I need, and it would be. But life sometimes is a bit imperfect. And I'm learning to embrace those imperfections.
A while back we removed the glass front doors from this little nook in our dining room.
It looks MUCH better without the doors.
But those doors have been sitting in the laundry room/storage area for a few months.
I knew better than to throw them away, I just hadn't yet come up with a grand idea of what do do with them. And then....chalkboard paint!
Yeppers - I caved to the trend of painting things with chalkboard paint. And it was so fun!
Not exactly sure where they will find their place in our home - but I'm loving them already! Even Seth seemed to like them - although he initially scoffed at the idea. Once he saw them he actually liked them and wants to put one up in the laundry room so we can leave notes for each other.
How cute is that? Little laundry love notes!
So that's how you turn an unused glass door into a totally rocking laundry love note message board.
PS please don't look too closely because yes there is a black smudge on the white frame that I need to touch up. Not to mention the holes from the knobs that I need to fill in or cover up. Imperfections are beautiful. Say it with me: Imperfections are beautiful. Now if I can just convince Seth of this!
