Our Office

I thought I would show you the rest of our office. I've shown you the new black cabinet we got but here is the rest. I put the pictures that were over our bed in here and I like them here so much better.

I had a basic white platter that I wasn't really using anymore so I painted the inset with chalkboard paint. I hung it with a black and white ribbon. What else can I paint with chalkboard paint....
I love these chairs that my grandmother gave us. One day I would like to get them re-upholstered. That "table" is a plant stand that I put a round piece of glass on. I already had both so it was free!
In the bathroom we took down the standard builder grade mirror and hung this painted one. Of course it came from Oops.
This picture was one of the very first things I bought from a flea market when we got married. It is probably not worth a dime but it goes with the shower curtain so well and it reminds me of our first little house. That is our office. Hope you enjoyed the tour!

I love it! The platter with the CB paint...great! I have been wanting to paint the inset of one of my silver platters...just haven't done it yet. That cracks me up about "What can I paint with CB paint now?" Haha! :o) The cabinet of course is to die for, and I love those chairs!

What a cute idea to paint the platter with chalkboard paine, I love it. You have a beautiful home! I don't know if you've got your stamp set yet, but you can stamp the outside and middle part seperatly, so I just stamped the outside with one color, put the letter stamp in the middle, took the outside one off, and then stamped the letter in another color. Let me know how they turn out!

I just love every room you post. Everything is so nicely put together. It's taking me forever to even get halfway done here. I REALLY need an OOps. :)

I did have that photo up but I can only seem to get 5 photos per post. I had to weed through the pictures and pick my favorites. Im still learning... I need to figure out how people can post more pictures.. any ideas? Susie

Susie Harris said...

I did it! Everyone will be sorry now cause I love pictures... Thanks for helping me out. Just six months ago I had no idea how to turn this thing on... look at me now. It's kinda scary, Susie H

I LOVE that painting from the flea market. And the mirror in the bath is TO DIE FOR! And guess what, Big Daddy's grandmother gave us a pair of those exact chairs! How about that! We match!

Just found your site. I love the web design of your blog. I adore all of the black accents! Chalkboard paint can be so fun and the ideas are limitless. Check out Crayola's chalkboard paint. It comes in a rainbow of colors.
