Let me tell you, that black mesh was hard to pull out.....hubby finally took pity on me and ripped it all out for me.
My vision for these were to become chalkboards for the house. I had been seeing every one's chalkboards and I had to have some. This is at our front door. I was constantly putting a little note up with tape if I had to do anything out of the normal.....example if the dogs had to get groomed or Lexi needed to bring something to school. Otherwise, I just zip out the door and never think about it till ut oh, too late.
Everyone has been instructed to look at the board in the mornings and in the afternoons for any instructions or just a simple "How was your day" message. The other two are being used in our kitchen/eating area. I put a little shelf next to the chalkboards and I have put a ceramic pumpkin with all my chalk in it (you can see it in the next picture).
The next two pictures are of my eating area and my new dining room table. We have had our table for a long, long time and had been wanting one with black or all black.....well, since Lexi was getting new furniture, mom wanted something too...hee hee. I showed this to my hubby and he loved it and said let's get it....so we did (please ignore the camera lens cap on the table...duh)!
Here is another picture of it. We got it Wednesday and love it.....it also will extend out for larger gatherings. At some point I want to replace the china cabinet but that will have to wait for now.
