Counting Down

I bought this cute frame in the clearance section at Jo-ann's.

And I knew it could use some sprucing up.

When the boys and I were leaving California,
we talked about needing someway to countdown until the next time we see Willie.

So, first, I took the glass out.


And painted it with my chalkboard paint.
It took quite a bit of coats.


Then, I used paint markers to write the message in yellow.

And I took my spray paint to the frame itself, using this great turquoise
I have been itching to use.

And finally, with my chalk, I filled in the sleeps we have left until we are together again!
What a fun way to look forward to May!

Wonderful!! I like how you said "sleeps." That sounds like lingo that my kids would get.
