I kept the framed chalkboard up for our ever changing lists and notes.
It really is dramatic don't you think? I had quite a few great comments that suggested leaving a big rectangle of chalkboard and paint the rest the original color. I like that idea and you never know I might end up doing that after the holidays.
Remember the plates I found at an estate sale over the summer? Well they finally found a home above the cabinets with a couple ironstone pitchers. I only had two dinner plates and needed a third so I glued one of the little ones onto a platter I found at Target.
We use this little dell computer to drive all of our music wirelessly. This is my husband's baby; he loaded over thirteen hundred CDs and has plans to load all of our albums too. This will allow us to use our "Music Room" for actual storage since it really is just a closet, but that's a story for another day.
We're really looking forward to decorating our new wall for the holidays.
