It's Tuesday... I am not a big fan of Tuesdays.... well except for Real Housewives of Orange County... did I just type that... sorry a guilty pleasure... don't judge:).

Monday,  I can deal with it's the start of the week and everything is new again... but with Tuesday the newness has worn off and there are still 3 whole days till the weekend... oh and it's grocery day.

 The grocery store and I have a love/ hate relationship.  I love to fill the fridge and pantry up.. and that is where it ends.   So I guess Tuesday and I better make amends, there are still 12 more hours left ....  since there are a few more hours left here is a quick project

I have a lot of wall space and I wanted something large to fill it..... enter the reliable Masonite.  I had the guy at Lowe's cut my exact measurements... me using a saw would have required this project to be rated as difficult.  I painted two coats of Valspar blackboard paint to the Masonite board and voila your done.   The architectural piece above was a sign I recycled with some paint and that sweet little wreath is just natural coffee filters and twine...

Happy Tuesday~

Cute chalkboard. Don't worry, I think there are more closet Housewifes watchers than you think. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Hi Bristol~

I love your new chalkboard! It is gorgeous! :) Don't you just love that Valspar chalkboard paint? It is such a great product, I swear by that stuff! :)

I hope your Tuesday ended well, and now there is just Thursday and Friday left until the weekend! Weekends are definitely the best. :)

Have a wonderful rest of your week!
