Chalkboard Paint Crazy

And when I say crazy, I mean crazy.  It just hit me and I really ran with it.
At about 4:30 yesterday I up and decided now would be the time to paint my kitchen with chalkboard paint.  I have wanted to do it for a while now, but I don't know what came over me.  Maybe that I had gone like 12 hours without a new project or that my kids were actually napping or that the color in my kitchen finally grossed me out enough that I had to never see it again- I don't know.
But I did it.
(don't judge my clutter.  I am a refrigerator decor hoarder)
and so do the kids.

Then we took that chalkboard paint and used it to paint some pumpkins.

They got pretty into that too.

Very into painting. Serious face.

They weren't the prettiest pumpkins around, but they were efficiently painted.

and terribly decorated.  I know.  I am not an artist. (as if that was in question)

and my mother in law got me two of these fantastic chalk boards when she went to round top

(Do y'all want lessons on how to be an amazing artist? clearly I should give them)
and now I am painting my chairs...
I may need an intervention.
at least its not chalkboard paint :)
