So, when we moved in and I got
stuck blessed with maroon counter tops and we opted to paint the kitchen a very light pink in hopes of pulling it all together, my hubby hung this little shelf in my kitchen for me. I randomly didn't have a drawer deep enough for a my old rolling pin so found the perfect hiding spot for it on these shaker pegs. I also thought, hey, I like this Christmas wall hanging enough to hang it here for a bit. That was a year plus ago. And I got sick of Christmas year round.
I probably will hang up the wall hanging again FOR Christmas, but in a different spot and after I have missed it for a bit.
Anyhow, since we're always trying to figure out dates at the supper table, I came up with an idea to buy a frame and two chalk board decals from Stampin' Up. I also wanted a quick and easy spot to hang the phone numbers we call often since my kids are constantly nabbing my blackberry to look up numbers! I am pretty pleased with my result although I was also looking for something magnetic. I have a plan for that, which no doubt will be a future post. Right now, the clippy works for holding on to little things! Here is a close up of the flowers. The white ones are Prima while the Newspaper one is Pure Potsdam and came from The Mad Recycler.
I am looking for a smaller piece of chalk. I love that this calendar is recyclable, but the numbers are too fat to write too much in the spaces. Anyone got any ideas?
Let me know if you are interested in more details about the actual products I used from Stampin' Up or Janessa's flowers.
I can help you get either if you are inspired!
