:: from wallpaper to chalkboard ::

there's still nothing on the walls in evan's room, making it appear slightly more "prison chic" than i intend it to be, but at the rate we're going it's going to be awhile before i've got pictures of his room to show off, so here's a preview of the coolest part: the chalkboard.

we used chalkboard paint and a chair rail. evan freaking loves it.

and if you're curious, here's a before shot of the same room. AHH!

and an in-progress shot.

it got a lot worse before it got better, eh?

Damn, girl! You did all that pregnant?!? Hat tip. Major hat tip.

The room looks great! So bright, and I love the chalkboard wall!

That's awesome...well...not the wallpaper (what were they thinking?), but the chalkboard is amazing.

the wallpaper was the original wallpaper. underneath was just the plaster walls. from when the house was built in 1930-something.

and it was still in incredible shape. so you have to give the former owners credit for that, at least. : )
