Featured : Liz from Savvy Seasons

I am so excited to share a very special blogger with y'all today!  I know you will love her blog as much as I do....I want you to meet Liz from Savvy Seasons today. Last week I asked her to guest post while I was spending time with the kiddos. Liz just completed a new chalkboard project (something I've been dying to do) and she's sharing it with us today:



"How many of you have wanted to try Chalkboard Paint in your home?  Well, whether you are curious about the product, have tried it in the past, or want to learn how to get started, pull up a chair! =)
Chalkboard paint has been popular for a number of years now, and I am about to experiment with it in 
my kitchen.  Would you like to see the process?
This is my pantry door.  As my life gets busier, I find myself needing to leave myself notes as a reminder to get something done, or to perhaps pick something up at the store later.  Well, this chalkboard is going to help me tremendously, especially when school starts back up. NO MOREscatter-brained MOM. ;) 
 Join me and I will show you the simple process.
 This is the door before I started.
These are the products I used.
 I love FROGTAPE, because it keeps the paint from seeping out and it keeps the lines straight.
Here you can see where I taped everything off.  
 I primed my door with spray primer.  Yes, spray paint in the house is a no-no, but I did this with good air circulation and ventilation, fan on/windows open.
I taped off the area that I wanted painted.
In the photo above, you can see where the door has been primed.  I let the paint dry for 30 minutes.
At this point, I was ready to get painting.  I got all my supplies at Wal-Mart.
Paint ready to go!

So, what do you think?
Would you believe, the one thing I forgot to buy was, you guessed it, CHALK!!

So, I am "chalking" this story up to my forgetfulness, 

thus the reason for a....

CHALKBOARD! ;)"
