Chalk Paint Reveal

Remember that time I posted my foray into chalk paint? Well, obviously it’s long since been finished.  This goodwill steal was destined to be the home of our printer.  It’s handy wheels made it easy to roll the printer out on the rare occurrence that we’d actually use it (for printing….. wedding invitations?!?) while generally… Continue reading Chalk Paint Reveal
