Chalkboard Wall Take One

As mentioned in a previous blog post, we began working on the chalkboard wall in our home office.  My stepfather is a natural when it comes to drawing so he was our obvious choice to help us on our chalkboard project.  I've been on the fence on what I really wanted to do.  I've considered a basic wall quote and even a street in Paris.  Since Rob and I could handle a quote, I figured I'd start off with the more difficult drawing of the street.  My stepfather did a great job.  It took him no more then 15 minutes.  We did, however, encounter a small problem.  Since I didn't season {get the board all chalked up} the chalkboard prior to him drawing, when a mistake was made it was obvious. Because I'm a perfectionist, I'm going to have to erase it to prepare the board better.  I'm considering something more simple.  I do love how it turned out though!  So, I figured I'd share it with you before it gets erased.

I plan on working on it this weekend once I've gotten a little rest.
It's been a busy week and I'm beginning to feel like this.
If I could only look so fashionably tired.
Will return once the bags from under my eyes disappear.
