Something’s Missing

It feels sooo good to feel good!

I’ve been under the weather and just started feeling like myself again this past weekend.

I’ve spent a lot of time resting, napping, and sleeping and when I finally came out of it I was quite disappointed that winter was still here.

Oh well, a girl can only hibernate for so long…. even when she’s sick.

I don’t have much to show for the last two weeks except this project that is finished, but somehow not finished at the same time.

Here’s the before.

I covered the middle area and spray painted it with a lovely white paint and primer combo.


Then I covered the outer area and spray painted the centre with chalkboard paint. I did three coats, following the directions on the can.


I’m at a loss at what to do next. Maybe it’s because I lost a few creative brain cells when I was sick… maybe more than a few.

But it seems like something’s missing to me.  It doesn’t seem finished.

It needs some colour or something. But what?

Any suggestions???

  4. So glad you are back. Just a narrow border around the chalkboard wold look great. and you know I would have to put something rusty hanging from it. Cannot tell how large it is., but a maybe a border of silverware?
