a couple of weeks ago, josh and i painted a chalk board wall for eleanor in her nursery. i have long loved chalk board walls in homes (i painted one for myself in my first new york city apartment, and josh and i have had one in every space we’ve lived in together, too– see here, here, and here). i can’t wait for many afternoons of coloring with eleanor on her little wall over the next couple of years.
ps. linking all those old posts just made me so nostalgic! i can’t believe what has taken place since i drew that countdown to my wedding on my old new york city apartment wall! if you would have told that version of myself from five years ago that i’d be coloring on a chalk board wall with my daughter here today in washington dc, she wouldn’t have believed you… in fact it’s still hard for me to believe.
*we used non toxic chalk board paint from our local paint store and don’t worry, i’ve been diligently wiping up that chalk dust at the end of each day.
