DIY Distraction

9 Jun

As I shared in my last post, I have a vision to infuse my home with more laid lack, bohemian style. I also have a to-do list to match. Often, and most especially when I have more pressing projects to do, I get distracted by an idea that’s easy and not even on my list. This happened last week. 

Out of a desire to add some visual interest to the dining room, teach my son the days of the week, and more easily communicate our family schedule, I created a giant black board on the back door. 

This project was quick and fun. I simply primed the door, did three coats of Rustoleum Chalkboard paint, and stenciled abbreviations for the days of the week.

My husband is a freelance writer and I’m trying to get my business up and running while busy with the little ones. Things are constantly changing on our schedule, and this is such a simple way to organize that flexibility. Plus, it looks fun, and I can now easily refer to “today, tomorrow, and yesterday” when talking with Thomas. We use a heart to mark the current day:)
