I am so excited for the Winter Pinterest Challenge from Young House Love, Bower Power, The Remodeled Life, and Decor and the Dog! If you follow us on instagram (pinstersisters) - you might have noticed that I busted out the chalk board paint again when I posted this pic a couple weeks ago:
Anything with chalkboard paint is the definition of a Pinterest project, right? Well it all started with my 2013 goals. Remember how I said I wanted to help keep my closets organized? Well I had cleaned out my coat closet at the end of last year but it didn't feel complete. I saw this pin and knew it would help me achieve the goal:

|This was after one coat. Very streaky.|
|3 coats - good enough!|
The hole came out a little larger than I would have wanted, but it was quick and easy. Next step was to "season" them. Just rub the side of a stick of chalk over them and rub it off with a paper towel.

|Hats are all the way to the left. JJ's stuff contains his hats, sneakers, mittens, etc. Flags are seasonal garden flags for out front next to the porch and gloves are pretty self explanatory.|
Like I said, super easy project that probably cost me less than $5 and an hour collectively. I have a bunch more made and ready to use once I get the organization bug again and attack another closet. Looking at these pictures, I am thinking it might be fun to paint a different color in the back of the closet. Or maybe a stencil? It looks kind of boring, right? Thoughts?
I am linking this up to the Pinterest Challenge and I think Shannon is linking up her awesome Book Shelf Upgrade. We can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
