Check it Out! In the 6 months that we have been living in our new home, we have made quite a few changes. I am not the type to just live in it. I have to personalize it! So with a clean slate to work with, we were able to fix things and fix things up! This week for my Monday Make It, I wanna share a few of the changes we have made and show how easy it is to "make it" yours!
First I wanted to share how you can make a chalkboard on your closet doors. My daughter is a doodler and loves to write and draw so we just bought a small bottle of chalkboard paint from Michael's and painted the insides of the raised panels on her closet doors.
If your hesitant about getting a straight line, just run a line of tape to keep it square.
The other change I wanted to share is our living room coat closet. Not one of my kids likes to use a hanger so I decided the coat closet would not have a rod. So first thing we did in that old plain closet was strip it of the shelf and rod and then painted the walls.
We then put up 1 x 6's at head and hip heights and painted them a contrasting color. I hit a sale to get those ceramic hooks and knobs for buy one get one free via Hobby Lobby and they are so pretty!
I love the way this turned out and the kids love how easy it is to hang up their stuff now! I'm thinking of using the same idea in their closets!
