Whatcha Chalkin’ About?

There’s been a little addition to our basement stairwell.  See that ugly old electrical box?   It needed something to hide behind…  Welcome, oh long awaited chalkboard!

I would have loved to DIY this baby, but sadly, the paint itself would have cost more than this piece altogether, not to mention the time involved.  Perhaps I’ll make one down the road, but for now, I’m thoroughly enjoying our new store-bought art (from Homegooods, if you were wondering).  Hurray for finally covering up our old electrical box!  Goodbye ugly, hello happy. 

Since we already have a memo board on our fridge, I plan to use this space for my favorite quotes.  Check out our current inspiration.
