This is the most wonderful time of the year. Our Thanksgiving week was filled with happy thankful moments. We enjoyed hosting Kevin's family this year (28 people - lots of kids!) I enjoy dreaming up different ways to decorate every year and it helps me get through the cleaning! I tell myself that if I complete all my chores I can decorate/paint/create something. This year I found a beautiful frame in my attic waiting for a purpose. Kevin cut a piece of plywood for me and I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk paint. A quick easy chalkboard. [gallery type="rectangular" link="none" size="medium" ids="6882,6880"] While the paint was out I added this buffet to my painting list. The buffet was my grandmothers and I wanted to bring it upstairs to use it for my dishes and flatware.
