my husband is painting my in-laws home right now, and my mother in law and i were talking about what other improvements they could make to the house in the next few weeks. she is thinking stone colored walls, maybe with a green or purple accent wall, black kitchen cabinets, and something cool on the awesomely painted fireplace mantle. excuse me for being weird and loving design projects, but i had to look around a little...
my husband and i love chalboard paint, and think it would be so handy on kitchen cabinets for grocery lists, menus, honey-do lists, etc. love.
