They are almost identical in size, so originally I thought I'd hang them side-by-side. But, I've changed my mind. I came across this paint at AC Moore for half-price ($3.50).
I figured I'd spruce up the chalkboard paint on the board with the flower. So, I taped off the edges, just as the original paint job.
Then I painted the "brown" chalkboard paint onto the board. Hmmmm.....
Does this look brown to you? (And yes, I see there is a serious problem with that picture on the board... uh, it's too shiny... should've sanded it down... but you'll see how I fix that later.)
I added a little ribbon to the top (another sale-price find)
Now, on to fix that big ol' spot on the board that just wouldn't cover up well. I have a future idea to fix this, but in the meantime, I found this.
I made this clipboard last year by "ModPodging"a black and white printout (just on computer paper) onto a mini clipboard.
It covered the "whoops" quite well!
I added a few little reminders to the crew upon their exit of the home...
I have plans for the other board... it'll take me a little longer to do that one, though.
While I'm standing in the mini mudhall, I might as well show my other little project. I had purchased this big frame at Christmas, but decided after opening it up that I didn't like it for the picture I had.
So.... I wrapped burlap around the back board, printed out a cute quote on my Cricut... and now I use the glass as my "whiteboard".
I have plans for this mudhall, so this board won't stay forever. I'm sort of liking this at Brown Paper Packages. Isn't it adorable? I think I'm even going to borrow a similar wreath idea. My daughter will once again say, "Another wreath??"... I can hear it now.
