I feel so fortunate to do what I love and have the chance to share with you my little ideas. In the next few weeks you are going to see a ton of home improvement projects here at The 36th Avenue.
Some of them will be small {like the one today}and some others a bit bigger…
So let’s get started…
A few weeks ago, on our last day in Oregon I received this box of goodies in the mail… thanks to DecoArt.
Because of the long waited move into our home I hadn’t had the chance to create anything with
these wonderful paints but as soon as I moved in I opened the chalkboard paint. The first thing I loved was the fact that it came in a 8oz. bottle… so easy to store!
My project, was my tiny pantry…
I want you to keep in kind that our home has been rented out for almost two years…
and this is how the poor little thing looked just a few days ago…
Sick!
Filthy and unbelievable disgusting!
The first thing I did was take care of the inside of the door.
Always before you paint make sure you clean thoroughly the surface that you are going to work on… After doing so and taping the area that I wanted to paint I followed the instructions in the DecoArt Chalk Paint Bottle and with a small roller …

…I transformed in minutes the door into a chalkboard.

While drying and between coats I started to paint the inside of the pantry
in a sage green color… and I have to say that the transformation was instant… It looks super clean and fresh… Love it.
The next step was to organize the food items. I purchased all of my containers at  my local Wal-Mart. Now, this part can be pricey.  I spent close to $50.00 in all of the storage items but think about it as an investment…

…and TRUST me it is worth every penny.

I normally put in my pantry my food cans… but I decided this time to do something different and keep
in there the most used items such as cereal, snacks, and things of that nature…
So here it is… my little new pantry…

 I love my little chalkboard!

…The End!
