A Beach Cottage Year in Review – Chalkboard Paint
Mon 27th, Dec, 2010
G’day, how the devil are you?
I hope you enjoyed yourselves, we did, a Christmas swim, turkey, Christmas Carols, Australian seafood the like of which you wouldn’t believe and three very happy BC Kidlets..
So it’s time to review the year in Beach Cottage Land, it’s been a funny year for me, for a whole manner of reasons but one thing I did do a lot of was slapping chalkboard paint on many a thing…
In September I made over an old fridge with it, it was an eye opener project, the fridge though in good working order was destined for landfill…but what can chalkboard paint not cure huh?
This is how it looked before…
It’s been filled with champagne, strawberries and chocolate ever since ;-)
In August in the depths of winter ;-) , I felt the need to zap a few things with the paint and because I am loving noticeboards around here I upcycled an old headboard that I had found sitting on the side of the road
…we’ve made good use of it as a to-do list maker and of course, I put daily chores for the BC Crew up here… ;-)
but this one, and still my fave, the old vintage door….she has made many appearance on this here blog the past year…this was the door that was spied by Mr BC on the bus into the city one day with a ‘free’ sign on it….now it’s the sixth member of the BC Crew
back in February she was part of the me failing to have a Supermum moment
in October the famous chalkboard vintage door was in an episode of BCTV
and just recently she held my Christmas Wishes
I used her to communicate about DIY and draped here in garlands and shells
And bless her, she had to endure, as did everyone in this old cottage my French phase…
and just recently dressed her up for Christmas time with fairy lights…
So, if you happen to see a vintage door, an old headboard or really any manner of things as you go about your business, I encourage you to invite them into your home, slather on a copious amount of chalkboard paint and welcome into your family with abandon…
