Kitchen art

I have a slight obsession with chalkboards and chalkboard paint... it seems to be infiltrating my home and the kitchen is no exception! I had some 'artwork' in our breakfast nook that I wanted to update, so I grabbed my chalkboard paint and chalk and went to work.

Front yard updates

Now that we've had our trees pruned, the rest of the yard needed work. So much so that our HOA sent me a notice... *hangs head in shame* To be fair, the weather has been all over the place, so it has been hard to get out there and clean things up. But with the lovely weather we had yesterday, I knew I had to do something!

I (again) recruited my wonderful mother and we got to work.

Here are some before pictures...

Trees, trees, and more trees

There once was a house,
Covered with trees,
The owners would cringe,
At even the slightest breeze.

Concerned and hoping,
That limbs wouldn't crash down,
On their own house,
And others all around.

*Hold for applause or snaps*

Quick change

What to do with half a quart of leftover chalk paint? Find other things to paint!

These stools (from Target) needed something to help them pop a bit more. Jon and I don't use them very often, but they reside in our main living room, so I wanted to jazz them up a bit.
