My DIY projects have really slowed down this week. I worked, Saturday, Sunday & Monday so when I finally did have time, it really has been too wet to take out my primed tables from the shed and paint them. So, instead I’ve started on another DIY project only indoors.
search on Pinterest.com and you’ll find tons for inspiration like these few images.
The area across from the dining area which we’ll use for the kids, seemed like the perfect spot. Right now they have just clear boxes filled up with toys, but tomorrow, two bookshelves will arrive and be put in each of the corners. And thankfully, our wardrobes, will be delivered. I’m happy to say that I’ll finally be able to put some stuff away.
|The kids had funny reactions when I told them that black area was a chalkboard. Pretty excited, I’d say!|
As I’ll have left overs, I might actually do a small square in the kitchen to be used as a note board for shopping lists, or to do lists, etc.
I’m going to run to Homebase or B&Q one of these days to see about putting a crown moulding edge around it. I like the look of a block on the top two corners and lined wood down each side a bit like this one which was used to frame a mirror. I think it will give a clean, finished look.
After putting in the bookshelves next to the wall, it NEEDS a frame asap.
UPDATE: Sept 23, 2013 – a little before school chalkboard wall play and tonight before bed, Soren & I played Tic Tac Toe.
