How to make a sweet home!

 
 
I made a chalk board for one of my clients; it's ok to try it out on my kitchen first, right?? Love playing around with different looks and could not resist! I needed a lil kitchen-y type accessory to go with a clock I had previously sourced and a lovely canvas that my client already owned. I am happy to report that all three look very fabulous together in her kitchen and make a lovely wall vignette. I will show you the reveal over on my new site, very soon ;-).


 
The same client also sent this very sweet snap of her children helping paint the kitchen furniture. I know, bless them!

Admittedly the perfectionist within me was a little worried about application... but seriously "phht", who needs perfection! This lovely family will remember this time for years to come and I do think memories are the things that really make a home a sweet place to be.

I'm with Kylie on the bubbles bit. Love the little chalkboard and although I too cringe at than many little hands on paint brushes, the thought makes me smile ) xx

Love a chalkboard, but I am way too a anal to let my kids anywhere near a paintbrush in my kitchen. I think I'd die of a heart attack due to the stress.
Some mothers are complete saints, sadly I am not one of them......to hell with the memories.
