{ Chalkboard Border ~ Eat In Kitchen }

LIFE is not about
for the Storm to pass
learning to DANCE 
in the rain

I measured down 12" and taped my line
painted on the chalkboard paint { two coats }
Primed it with chalk and wiped off with damp towel

Found the quote I wanted and wrote it up there first
then I went back and filled in the letters...made them darker..neater

I painted some mdf pieces we had from our board and batten wall we are working on in the X- formal dining room...:)
nailed it up for some trim.
One BABY STEP done...whew!

NOW ~ for the CURTAINS

Yes it is still pouring --
ever so slowly I am learning to dance
I like this quote at this time in my life
Neat thing about chalkboard...unlike LIFE is...
YOU can change the quote!:)

Update- The color I used is Behr's Quietude

This looks fantastic! What a great idea!! I love how the black of the chalkboard paint ties in with the black of your chairs. The look really ties together so well!!

I love the quote and the idea of using chalkboard paint instead of vinyl to put it on the wall. Gorgeous!

Hi there, I was surfing the net looking at blog designs and stumbled on yours, where I found myself mesmerized by your beautiful words and pictures. I'm at a similar stage of life to you (just not a grandmother yet though) - and love your spirit.

I found your post from Katie at Cowboy Phraseology. I am in love with your dining room wall color. Are they the same color as the Cloud Burst on your table? Love the color on the walls, and I'm trying to convince my husband that this color would look great in our house! Can you leave a comment here with the color/code of the walls? It's gorgeous! Love the chalkboard idea too! Thanks so much!
