Thrifty Thursday: Chalk Board Paint

I thought I would get back into my old blogging routine and bring back good ole’ Thrifty Thursday!
Today I wanted to show you some really fun ways to use chalk board paint.

First let’s start out by making our very own paint- and save a buck or two.

Follow the instructions from this blog
You can make the paint any color you'd like.
In the Kitchen
The bar front
Better than scrap paper
Fronts of cabinets
Inside the cabinets
Spice jars
What a great way to stay organized
Bed or Bath
On the sliding closet doors
The headboard
Why not in the bathroom even.
For Parties
Much more fun than those red plastic cups- right?

Obsessed with: Jewelry, Dark Hues & Long Hair

Along with the cooler weather, spiced candles and falling leaves...
I am obsessing over a few more things...

This trendy sideways cross necklace
Find it at this Etsy shop
Dark nail polish- screams fall & I am all about it right now.
I am also missing my long hair.
Thinking about growing mine out again.

Contemporary Flare

Lately we have been very busy at the office working on remodels.
I wanted to share a beautifully transformed kitchen with you.

The black granite makes the whole kitchen pop
We are so pleased with the outcome.

Fall is Back!

Happy October everyone!
I couldn’t be happier that the cooler months are upon us. (Not that it feels that way in Texas--unfortunately)

I wanted to share some cute, fun and inexpensive ways to decorate for fall.
This would be easy to do with wine bottles also.
Use items you already have, no need to spend money on something that you will hide away for a year.
Paint pumpkins with your inital to dress up your entry way, or outside on the porch.
How cheap and easy is this!
Check out this blog post by Karin Lidbeck for a beautiful tablescape idea. 
and here is one more great idea by Shanty2Chic
I hope you are all enjoying the nicer weather- where ever  you are.
