Giant Chalkboard? Check.

It took a while to get it started, but it's done and I love it even more than I though I would. I have an awesome husband who humors me when I have these seemingly silly ideas. It ended up being a project for him and his dad .

Before you look at this next picture, I need to explain why Chris is wearing this hideously huge shirt. We took a picture frame over to his parents house (which is where we made the chalkboard) so we could paint it in order to make a jewelry holder like this. Immediately after opening the can of paint, Chris got some on his lovely Urban Outfitters V-neck. He had to borrow a huge shirt from his dad while the other shirt was being washed.

The largeness is only accentuated by the skinny jeans. I love my husband.

I decided to take a few pictures around the outside of their house because it was such a gorgeous day yesterday!

And there you have it...I'm so excited to hang it up once we move. I think I may have to get colored chalk. If you missed my post with the inspiration for the giant chalkboard and for directions, you can read it here.

    yes they are new barstools! I found these online, they are all over but had TWO for a third of the price of ONE at other places! Plus they came in 2 day! I'm so excited to use them :) (I'm not advertising for them, really)
