I will start off by saying I'm not claiming to have reinvented the wheel. This weeks DIY Friday is not groundbreaking, but it is something that we've had in our apartment for a couple of years, is painfully simple and gets use every day. For those very reasons I can't help but share our blackboard shopping list ...
Way back in 2011 I fell for the blackboard fad, and I fell hard. I bought a tin of the black stuff, woke up early one morning and attacked our living room with it. I was in love for a couple of months, but all that black began taking its toll. I Brazilian waxed our blackboard wall and trimmed it back to a strip above our shelf, but it wasn't long before I painted over all of it.
But one patch survived; the patch I painted in the kitchen. We've found it so useful. We've gotten in the habit of snapping a picture of the list whenever we head out so we know what to pick up on the way home. It's really been worth its weight in paint.
Let's be honest here people, tonic should be on the top of the list.
Exciting stuff will be going on all up in here next week! I think I'll treat this weekend as the calm before the storm. All that's going on next week will be a massive bouquet of excitement, fear, and a big bow of stepping outside of my comfort zone. But all of which a step in the right direction. Light a candle for me folks. xx A
p.s. Today's DIY Friday was going to be a little something involving washi tape but the fab and uber creative ladies at A Beautiful Mess beat me to it. Mad props ladies! My hat is off to you. So is the life of a blogger.
