Renovate Brooklyn: Secret Messages in the Mirror!

As promised on Monday, I have painted the inside of our bathroom medicine cabinet with some of the left-over chalkboard paint. CA-UTE!

Now I have lots of places to leave John annoying messages about errands to run (on the pantry door) what we're eating for dinner (on the dining table) and personal hygiene (on the bathroom cabinet)!

Nothing says love like a nagging wife.

This was another mega-easy project. 1, 2, 3: A light sanding on the surfaces, a little blue painters tape to keep the white-parts-white, and two coats of chalk-board paint later... VOILA! An unexpected little surprise whenever we go to brush our teeth... 


At left, you can also see what the medicine cabinet looks like when it's closed... No one but a mischievous snooping house guest will ever be the wiser. Awesome. 

Everyone loves a secret!

Did someone just say "Whoa. That's a lot of mirrors." Check out the blog posting all about our bathroom to find out more on that subject. 

I'd like to say, if I may, that this photo doesn't really do the bathroom much justice, so I really hope you'll go and check out the previous posting to see more flattering photographs in action! 

Check out the loving message I left on the dining room table this morning... 
These chalkboards have opened up a whole new world of possibilities for marital communication! 

Will the fun know no bounds? Nope!
