There’s a lot of exciting developments going on here at the bungalow, most too premature to share, unfortunately. Suffice it to say that I’m excited and BUSY and the blog will suffer for it.
In spite of the busy-ness, I’ve managed to begin…and I do mean begin…not finish….several projects around the house.
I painted part of the door with Rustoleum chalk board paint weeks ago and then just left it unfinished.
The project stalled out because I originally had plans to trim it out with some vintage white molding, but realized after I painted the large swatch of door, that I didn’t have enough molding to cover the length and width that I had painted. Ugh!
Yes, it would have been smart of me to measure the amount of molding I had and paint the door accordingly, but of course, that’s not how I do roll. I get a bee in my bonnet to do something and I just go for it…all willy nilly like!
Buuuut, after looking at the roughly painted edges for a couple of weeks, I decided that I actually liked it that way, so it’s staying!
Whew! Crisis averted! Moving on!
While out shopping at T.J. Maxx, looking for those mercury glass lamps, I came across some chalkboard art for sale. So, of course, instead of buying it, I took a picture of it and decided to use it on this chalkboard door.
I loaded it onto my computer and got out my handy dandy project and got everything set up in the hallway to start tracing the design on to my chalkboard.
I used a chalkboard pen instead of actual chalk for this project because I didn’t want the design to be easily rubbed off with the opening and closing of this door. Chalk pens are semi-permanent. They can be easily removed with water, but won’t smudge when touched!
It’s an easy, but fairly time-consuming project, so I chose a design that is timeless and not seasonal. I can’t see myself spending two to three hours in my hallway drawing new designs every month. I’m just not that into it!
I’m not only thrilled with how it came out, but I’m ecstatic that I finally got a project finished! Woohoo!
FYI, I’m almost finished with the kitchen…
Bye from the bungalow,
