(we always look this cute when we craft...)
While going through this process patiently, Mary Susan (the beautiful amazing friend before mentioned) brilliantly came up with an amazing idea to decorate her kids' room. We were brainstorming and crafting one weekend and she suggested that we could cover everything with chalkboard paint... including a globe. GENIUS and ADORABLE! I immediately wanted to
All i did was apply 3 coats of chalkboard paint and used a white paint pen to outline both countries. To finish the look, i repainted the tacky gold base with a fresh coat of BEHR's premium paint.
I love that she will have a permanent outline of the US and Africa with a little heart outline of where her kids' new home will be in Tennessee. Since the adoption process is sometimes a long one- we can at least preoccupy ourselves by doodling on the globe... oh and you can check out Mary Susan's witty blog HERE to find out how she is preparing for her new growing family.
It's a small word afterall...
