My Birthday Wish

This year on my 37th birthday I wished for one thing.
A giant chalkboard in my kitchen!
On Oct 4th we painted the wall with not only chalkboard paint, but also magnetic paint!
Then for the next month my dad worked tirelessly to build a custom frame to put around it.
I love it!
so do the kids:)

Happy Birthday!

At our last home, I had two very large cabinets and I painted the doors with chalk board.

So very cool!

So cool. I have been thinking of doing this in Tristan's room on his closet doors. I especially love the pink blur in the bottom picture. Xia is on the move!!!

That is the coolest thing. I too wave been looking for a chalkboard-- but never thought of something like this! I might just have to copy your idea. :)

on another note, I am so sorry you have been so sick. I will pray for healing for you.
