With warmer days just around the corner, I am finding myself wanting to take on some Spring cleaning. There is just something about being able to open the windows and having the fresh smell of lemon Pine-Sol wafting through the house.
So, while I am waiting for those warm days to arrive, I have been making a to-do list of all the little jobs that need to be taken care of around the house. Things like giving the front door a fresh coat of paint and I have also noticed that the wall in our entryway and around the kitchen island isn't looking so clean anymore. We are also going to move Jessica's bedroom downstairs (stay tuned for some before and after photos... it's going to be amazing!) so that the boys will have their own bedroom. They have always shared a room, so this is a pretty exciting thing for them.
While I am getting my list together of all the house projects that need to be completed, I have also found some fun craft projects on the Country Living website.
I would love to try the dishes with the chalkboard paint. I also have an old mirror that could use a transformation and chalkboard paint might just be the answer. Perhaps I could hang it in the kitchen with the weekly menu on it so that when my kids ask the infamous question of, "Mom, what's for dinner?" I can simply point them to the chalkboard.
I also love these fabric covered journals because I love journals and what a great way to personalize them and make them match the decor of your room. How pretty would that be to have a stack of coordinating journals piled on a table next to your favorite sitting spot. Yes, I am liking that idea!
