A Chalkboard Wall...Pinterest Inspired

Don't you just love Pinterest!
I could spend so much time just looking at boards, pinning, and drooling over the most creative ideas. 
One of those ideas is chalkboards or chalkboard walls. I believe Miss Mustard Seed and Furniture-olgy have some of the prettiest I have ever seen and after staring at them for awhile I decided to take the plunge and create my own. With a little help from hubby we accomplished just that and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. 
Wanna see??'s the tutorial 

Start with a blank wall

Tape off your design

Paint it with chalkboard paint and season with a piece of chalk to cure it

And my favorite part...decorate!!

Do you love chalkboard walls or chalkboards?
If I ever get tired of this look, I can just paint right over it..ahhh I love paint!!

Have a blessed week.
Happy Mothers Day to all you mom's out there..isn't it the best job in the world!
