Hi there! Whew, I am finally feeling much better.  So sorry for the late post today but my cold just got the best of me.  I was literally in bed for two days.  This morning I went back to my other posts this week to make sure there weren’t any blatant errors since I was pretty much high on cold meds.

Since when do colds knock you on your rear?  As with everything else, I will just blame it on getting older.  If only somebody had told me it all falls apart after 30. lol 😉 Okay, okay! Welcome to Day 5 of the Fall series!!


I literally did this project this morning.  😉 It was awesome.

So I had other plans for today’s DIY but this morning I eyed a little wall hanging in the kitchen that I have been meaning to paint over.  For months I have been trying to come up with a cute, trendy idea.  Well my friends, today I knew it’s purpose.  I pulled out my Poppies paint powder, mixed it into some left over paint and created a chalkboard.fall-sign-post-featureHere is my little sign before.


Cute, but just like every other chain store decor.

Poppies dries really fast, hence why I was able to do the project THIS morning. Here’s the sign with one coat of paint.


10 minutes later, I added a second coat.


10 minutes after that, I wrote my little Fall message on it and started moving furniture and things around for a Fall vignette. fall-sign
