Hello sweet friends~
March is finally upon us
and with any luck,
it'll bring some Spring like weather to us all,
because man, this Winter is getting old!
I wanted to share a simple DIY for the Dining Room.
If you're an avid reader of the old blog,
you know I often share my dining room chalkboard with you.
I always saw a major problem with my chalkboard and
you may or may not have noticed it yourself.
The chalkboard is hung on a fairly good sized wall,
with no furniture underneath it,
so I always felt as though it was "floating" in space,
with nothing to ground it.
I always wanted to add a sideboard or buffet,
but my husband was always against it.
He would give me a speech about how the last
thing we needed was another piece of furniture
in the dining room, or that it would be an obstruction and
stick out too far & block people's ability to walk,
or how it isn't necessary to fill every available inch
of space with something, blah, blah, blah.
So, what is a girl to do?
Get creative & improvise something with
a narrow depth!
Ikea shelf to the rescue,
along with some brackets,
I got some fabric & sewed a simple skirt,
added some pretties....
and the chalkboard no longer floats!
See? Simple is good!
And now I want to officially declare-----
if I MUST see nothing but Winter whenever I look outside,
if I MUST freeze whenever I step outside,
then I MUST refuse to see Winter inside as well.
Spring decorating here I come!!!
