Josh: "Seriously? Now? O.k., but be quick. The kids won't last long in the car."
Me: "Yippeee! Thank you SO much! I promise, if we end up getting stuff, you won't have to help me re-do it. I'll do ALL the work."
(Notice the man and sander in the left corner)
Eeeeeew. pink speckled contact paper. NOT cool.
NOTE: I super promise that I did NOT ask them to help. I was inside putting the baby down for a nap and when I came out to the garage they were both hard at work. AWESOME!
Ta-daa!!!!! Seriously IN LOVE with this! I have been dying for more storage in my kitchen and this buffet is perfect!! $65 at a thrift store makes it even better. I often daydream that my home will someday resemble a page in the Ballard Designs catalogue, and this pretty chalk board is a nod to that dream. $20 at goodwill on a last minute-rushed trip definitely adds to the magic. This is a re-post from my family blog from August but I definitely thought it was worth sharing again here on "My Third True Love." I am happy every time I walk into my kitchen because of these beauties. Yay! p.s. to defend myself, I did the chalkboard 100% on my own. I also did the final coat of black on the buffet, distressed the edges, painted the hardware, and did like 5 coats of poly over the top. It was hard at times, and very fun. It is AWESOME!!! Ha ha, can you tell I'm feeling a tad guilty about having the boys help me. Again - I didn't ask (but was thrilled we could do it all together). xo
