Go Big or Go...

I want a chalkboard wall!


Well maybe not desperately. It's not like I'm going to drop to the ground and pitch a screaming fit if I don't get one. I don't think. Probably not. It doesn't even have to be a whole wall! I would gladly settle for a small section of wall!

Definitely not desperate! I have been dreaming about it though. And imagining where to put one.

This desire began when I saw the chalkboard wall Layla painted and then shared on her blog The Lettered Cottage. Click on The Lettered Cottage to check it out. It's very fun!

I've been looking for and getting giddy over chalkboard walls ever since, adding to my desperate desire. I'm not desperate.

The Husband and I have been trying to figure out the best place to paint our own chalkboard wall. We considered painting a door. Through traffic could cause trouble though. Door...out. 

Then we considered painting a section of wall at the end of the dining room and framing that section. The Husband did a little photoshop magic so we could see what it would look like.

We like it!

I had the spot taped off and ready to go...then the Husband said...wait for it..."Why don't we just paint the entire wall?" 

I could have squealed with delight!

I didn't think he would go for an entire wall.

But last night he taped off the entire wall and began to fill in the little holes from pictures that we had up.

Please disregard hideous light fixture that needs to be replaced!!
Today I will sand and prep the wall! If I'm lucky and all goes well I'll actually begin painting today! Yippee!

I can't wait to show you the finished product!

I didn't even have to drop to the ground and pitch a screaming fit. Not that I would have. I don't think.

How fun! I'm going to make a whiteboard wall in my craft room. First I have to get rid of a few things because I can start the remodel.

I might also paint part of the wall with magnetic paint. Can't use chalk...I don't like the feel of chalk. Sensory issues!
