Hey there! Hope everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend! I did some shopping, some painting, and spent time with family.

I hit a rummage sale after work on Friday and found a couple good deals.

I got this big chalkboard for $2! I'm planning on painting the wood and then hanging it in our kitchen.I also picked up this Homemakers Idea Company (Signature HomeStyles) shelf for $3.

It has hangers on the bottom too so it can be hung this way as well:
I measured out the hangers and put my nails in the wall. I couldn't decide which way I wanted to hang it so I thought I'd hang it both ways on the wall then decide which I liked better. Good idea until I realized the bottom hangers are not the same width apart as the top. Who's great idea was that? Eh, I like it anyway.

Hope you've all had a great start to your week!

Happy Birthday my dear friend. At least I get to be the first one to wish you a happy day here! Tonya beat me to it on FB.;) Can't wait to see how these turn out.

I love the shelf! And the chalkboard. I have been wanting to put a chalkboard in our kitchen. Very cute!!!

I like both the shelf and the chalkboard. You probably know this, but if you need to make the chalkboard area look fresher, you could buy that chalkboard paint. There's lots of ideas out in blogland for that (if you would need more ideas)!
