Wow! I love this – thanks for keeping us posted. Where do you find the time to do it? Of course, you do it in a heartbeat.
Gosh that is gorgeous. I don’t know that I could bring myself to ever erase it.
Love your blog BTW.
Wowsers. You’ve got some serious talent there, missy! What a fun way to get new art every month.
I popped in from your comment on YHL today and realized you did the concrete floors for the Pinterest Challenge. They look gorgeous—like leather. Great job. We may try something like that in our basement one of these days.
Haha, thanks Robin. The purpose of this chalkboard is to be a revolving canvas. So although I will be erasing it at the end of every month, my hope is to make each drawing even more memorable than the last. Stay tuned!
That’s one gorgeous leaf! Good job!
The skull took about 35-45 minutes and the leaf took about an hour and a half. We brought the board up to the living room so that I could watch Chris pass out candy to the trick or treaters while drawing away last night.
AWESOME! RIP Skully…he was awesome…but this leaf is gorgeous! I love how big it is. I seriously want you to tell us how long it took you to create it too.
Wow that leaf is amazing! I just started reading your blog today and when i read that you had a chalkboad to draw on, i figured it would be a simple image..stick figures and words haha. I wish it was on a canvas..that should not be erased
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
