This cabinet was neither antique, nor particularly interesting, but I figured a chalk paint overhaul would do it some good. I added chalkboards to the inside panels so it could work as a dart board cabinet, or place for reminders if used as a medicine cabinet. Paint: Folk Art tuscan red and oatmeal; and chalkboard paint.

This was a gift from Matt. He took a bunch of old cigar boxes, hand painted them, and re-imagined them into a wall mounted jewelry holder for me. Thanks hon!

Framed wall art

I didn’t want to spend a lot…well, actually, I didn’t want to spend anything on wall art appropriately sized to go above my couch. So Matt and I refashioned some frames into an interesting (and free) wall display.

Window memo board

This window framed mirror had a broken pane when I got it, so I replaced it with cork board and added a chalkboard to another one of the panes. Some knobs for hanging things, and a coat of Folk Art oatmeal paint, and it was good to go.

Closet door memo board


This memo board was created using an old closet door, key holder, cork board, chalkboard, and reused hardware. Chalk painted with Folk Art castle and decoupaged.

I found this old frame under my stairs, and decided to make it into something more useful…a wall-mounted jewelry holder.
