SNOW Days?

We are now on day three of being out because of the snow. With just way to much time on my hands and going a little stir crazy I decided to do a little something each day, you know, productive.

Thursday we got out early, I think I slept some. Friday I made a "matress" made with towels for my dog's kennel:

Monday, made some bling, here is a small sample:

Today, I turned my kitchen door into a chalkboard! I have been wanting to do some chalkboard thing for a while, and just never knew where to do it. My walls were taken and my house is small. Then it hit me!!!
Before:

First I picked my color, took the necesary trips to Lowes, sanded the door.
Then began mixing: Paint and unsanded grout (whatever that is):

Then we all got to work:

This was the first step, and it looked like this:

But then you sand, and rub chalk all over, and then you are free to write!
