Something old...

...something new.

So Sparrow's been holding down the fort here at {Beautiful Nest} for awhile, so I decided to jump in and show you all one of the projects I've been working on.

Now since I have four little ones, five years old and younger, from start to finish my projects tend to take ten times longer than my sister, Sparrow's. Good news is she assures me in time that as the kids grow I will be able to accomplish things faster.

I hope so.

Since it took me all day to clean the house. My really little house!

Though this before and after project isn't complete yet, I thought I would share with you a glimpse of what it is and what I hope it will become.

Now by now, you probably know I adore chalkboard paint! As a momma of little ones I also love the idea of having a wall my kids can scribble upon. Seriously what's not to love? However since we rent and do not own, I can't very well paint the walls so what's a girl to do?



When I was younger this chalkboard was mine and my parents recently gave it to me. {Neat aye?} My first thought was oh my goodness, I know exactly what I can do with this!

Now in my upcoming post I share details, details, details, but this post is like a trailer for a movie. Its just a juicy snippet of what's to come. So without further ado...my project.



After I finish painting this, me and the chalkboard are on our way to Sparrow's where she will show me how to add the finishing touches.

Thank the Lord for sisters!

So...did reading this inspire you to come back to see the the transformation? I sure hope so. In the meantime I hope you all have a fantastic week. Blessings!

Jenni - is your nickname Sparrow? That is so cool! You get "sparrow," I get "James." :(
