A few weekends ago Matt & I decided we needed a chalkboard in our kitchen. So we headed out to Home Depot to buy some chalkboard paint & then hunted around for the perfect frame to go around it.

We found one at Ross--I would have gone with something a bit more ornate but the size and shape was just too good to give up.

So I spray painted the frame white while Matt took care of the chalkboard paint in the kitchen. Here is the final product:

We love it!

Home Improvement

We've been working on a few updates in the study/office room. While out shopping a few weeks ago, I found a rug for $10 at Home Depot. I decided I had to have it. I love the way it looks under the sofa in the office.

When we moved in the windows in this room had basic $5 cheap-o looking shades in the windows. We replaced the broken ones at first just to have something to cover the windows but we've always wanted something warmer for the windows. Over the weekend, we finally bought and changed out the blinds. The result is a much warmer space for studying & working.

Above is the final product. It seems so much cozier than before!
