Finally , a Completed Pinterest Project

Ever have one of those days where absolutely nothing goes as planned?
Of course you have , everyone has.
And I had one today.


We are leaving tomorrow for a trip to New Orleans ( super excited about that ! ).
As you can imagine, I had tons of things to get done.
Including laundry.
The dryer quit.
Then Hubs broke the water line to the washer.
Not a good start to a busy day.

But it all turned out fine.
We had a spare dryer ( whole other story ),
 Hubs fixed the plumbing ( he is very handy ),
the laundry got done !

I haven't even begun to pack , but my house is clean.
I like to come home from a trip to a clean house.

Anyway , it was another gorgeous day day here in the trailerhood.
80 degrees again !
I'm hoping Mother Nature isn't just messing with us.
It made me ambitious to do a project.

A while back I had pinned this project

Pinned Image

and I have been wanting to create my own.
Well, a friend brought this into the store a few weeks ago

and the only thing I could think of is this would be so much better as a chalkboard !
Out came the chalkboard paint.
first coat
It only took two.
If I use chalkboard paint on metal or glass I give it a least 3 but usually 4 coats.

Remember that garbage bag of wine corks ?
Well they came out again too.
I don't know why I didn't take an "in progress" picture !
Geez....

I am VERY happy with how it turned out.

Here is a close up of the cork pattern.
Fun , huh?

Not sure where I'm going to put it yet.
Just glad it's done and out of my head !


I'm not sure what makes me happier,
the way this turned out or
that I finally created something that I pinned !

Also today...
Grandpa hung Addie's swing for her .
She loves it.
We couldn't find her sunglasses and she hates the sun on her eyes so Grandpa put his hat on her !

How about those boots !

I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful day as much as we did !

Not sure if I will have any posts next week or not.
I'm off to the Big Easy !

  6. Wow, I love how it turned out! I've been pinning wine cork projects for a month or so, but I thought that I would amass corks faster than I am. Darn screw top wine! That and champagne corks:)

  11. I do love my wine and really need to get on one of the many wine cork projects out there. And you combined it one of my other favorites -- chalkboard paint!

    Love the final product!
