    No Commitment Chalkboard Wall DIY

    Shared Art Room & Office Space | Oh Lovely Day

    Long before I created our full-sized chalkboard wall, I dreamed of a chalkboard wall. But I’m a renter. And using black chalkboard paint to cover one giant wall is not very landlord friendly. I was also a little afraid of the dust that the chalk would create. But then I collaborated with The Land of Nod to create a shared art room and office space and I revisited the idea of the chalkboard wall. After a lot of brainstorming and research I found a great solution for creating a full-sized chalkboard wall with little to no commitment: chalkboard contact paper!

    As you can see, Charlie loves it, and spends a lot of time at his chalkboard. He usually doesn’t erase until he’s completed a “scene” on the entire board, so I only have to do a dust clean-up once every week or two instead of constantly. And it took me 30 minutes and around $30 to make, and I can remove it super easily if necessary.

       We had our first date 20 years ago today when we were practically babies in high school. We were on and off (and on and off and on and off) through college, survived a 3 year long distance relationship before there was FaceTime and when one of us didn't even have a cell phone. We've done 11 years of sharing a bathroom, almost 6 years of marriage, and now almost 3 babies. Some days have been so easy, and others are incredibly hard. Each day we make a choice to love each other and enjoy this beautiful life together. And to do it our way, following our dreams and raising our children to be open minded, good and kind people. Our way, ride or die, till the wheels fall off. Me and you. Happy 20 year date-a-versary my social media-less hunk of a husband.❤️ We should have gotten a sitter  //  by @hazelnutphoto from our gender reveal, which I'll be sharing next week!
       Had a super #happymail day thanks to the 2016 calendar preview from @papersource. At first I was all like "the color, the design, the pretty, oh my! " but then I thought "2016, January, due date, holy shit! " I feel like the next 6 months just flashed before my eyes. Slow down 2015. The calendars and planners are real purty tho. #mypscalendar
