phase two is complete!

For the next phase in my make-over room, i decided on my own little twist of the chalkboard.

I came up with the idea when I was trying to decide on what type of artwork I would hang up in their room. I didn't want to spend money and commit to a design that we would all grow out of. SOOO why not have the artwork grow WITH the kids.. and have them make their own??

I don't have my step by step pictures to show, mainly because it was super easy and super quick.

So here's what i did:
1. Measured out chalkboard wall
2. Applied background paint {left-over from downstairs guest bedroom} p.s. always go lighter to darker with colors.... it's SOO much easier to cover a yellow than black..
3. Painted Chalkboard square
4. Cut frame from molding {thanks kurty}
5. Attach frame to wall {nail gun and some putty stuff...thanks kurty, again +}
6. Paint frame..{left-over from phase one}
7. Add a few touches here and there and....

  Voila!
