Here is what I started with. Pretty cute but I have no girls and I don’t know anyone named bab. Actually it was marked down because it originally had a y. Baby. No one puts Baby in the corner! Sorry, it's the first thing that pops into my mind when I read that.
So off came the letters. A little filler to smooth it out. Some primer, some paint and my first time using chalkboard paint. Finally. But wouldn’t you know it, I couldn’t find the box of chalk anywhere. Just my luck.
I added some coastal stripes like I did here on this project.
I originally picked it up with thoughts of using it to hold the mail in the laundry room. It tends to pile up on the kitchen counter. But I decided it was really too big and I needed something that would force me to go through it. So now I need to find it a new home.
Before I go I just want to say how my heart goes out to all of you that have been affected by the awful storms that swept across the south. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
