After two years of progress in our home library we installed our custom rolling ladder this weekend. And I am in Love. It is just what we needed in the room to finish it off.

Chalk Board Wall

One of this week's house projects was monumental.  When we first moved into our home I created a memo board section on a wall near the garage entry.  This awkward section of our family room was great for keys, bags, and mail. Notice the boring beige paint (which I have sworn to vanquish from the house,… Continue reading Chalk Board Wall
