Sweet Simplicity Link-Up: Chalkboard Paint Can Fix Anything (well, almost...)

Welcome to the first ever Sweet Simplicity link-up! I'm so excited to see where this little link-up goes and look forward to seeing your projects, inspiration, recipes, etc. I also hope that you visit some of the the links and get some inspiration for simplicity yourself!

Today, I'm going to share with you one of my favorite (and simple) ways to change up a piece of furniture (or a wall!).

Chalkboard paint.

Why I like it: I don't need to prime (I could, but I never do!), I don't need a topcoat, and it adds a fun pop of character to any room.

Here's my latest project with chalkboard paint: Meet my $6 thrift store find--flower basket included ;)

Before:


After giving it about three coats of chalkboard paint: (oh hey, that's me!)


Gave it a rubdown before drawing anything permanent:


Tried to make it fancy. Obviously my chalkboard writing skills need some work....



Now, it's time for you to link-up your simple projects, recipe ideas, simple budget ideas, simple design tips, well...pretty much anything as long as it's simple!!

Don't forget to use the #savorthesimple hashtag in Instagram to share your inspiration + simplicity :) I might just share them on next weeks post!!

Here are some little guidelines for the link-up:
1. I'd love for you to share that you're linking up with me today. You can grab the little button down there or just include a link.
2. Please only link projects/ideas/inspirational posts that have the theme of simplicity. In other words: no Julia Child recipes please :)
