Sometimes I get the greatest ideas from our storage closet. About a month ago I found an old picture that we had in our closet since we got married. It never went with our decor, so I just stuffed it away. One day I was looking for something and saw it chilling out in the closet. Suddenly it spoke to me and said, "I would look great as a chalk board in your kitchen." (Side note: When things that don't normally speak tell you something, it's usually a good idea to listen to them. Take Baalam and the talking donkey for instance. The donkey was trying to save his life.) What was a girl to do in this situation? Go get her chalk board spray paint, that's what! So I did.
First I painted it...
Then I hung it up, but the goldish-brown frame just wasn't doing it for me. Please know that I did not write "Yo Mama."
My dear husband added that for me.
So I painted it green. I wasn't particularly fond of this color either, but its better than it was at least.
Now we can write all sorts of fun things on it.
I figured since I didn't like the color I should put on a sheet music garland to make it all better.
So there you have it. The picture went from pointless junk to have a practical use. Thank you for speaking to me that day picture. I like you a lot better now!
