Once Upon A Time...


Once upon a time there was a mom who had nothing to do...




So she thought and she thought and after staring at the bright fire engine red wall and all the kids toys scattered about the laundry room. "Hmm...Perhaps I should paint that wall a lovely shade of blue."  And after hours of searching for just the right color, she did...







As she wiped the sweat from her brow, she said to herself...
I really need to paint this wall too...and so she did.

While she waited for the paint to dry, she went to the local Goodwill and found these fun little knick knacks for only $5...

 That go quite well with her new lovely walls...
 After admiring her new walls she thought to herself "I should  paint a chalkboard on the side of my frig and dryer.  Oh and that cute little space at the end of the cabinet  would make a great  Family Home Evening Board."  And so after 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of chalkboard paint and several hours later...She was done...



Except, she REALLY needed to repaint this wall white but her feet were killing her so she went to bed instead...The End.

  2. You are so talented! I'm so excited you get to paint...when we lived in apartments that was the thing I wanted most was color on the walls. It really looks great! What's funny is about the same time you were doing this I was putting a similar blue in our playroom! Happy decorating!!
