Writing on Walls

Anybody else have a noisy head? I do! Talking talking talking...aaaaall the time. Sometimes this talking makes it hard for me to remember all of the things I need/want to get done in a day, a week, a month, etc. So after one of my typical noisy-brain-induced, therefore panic induced, emotional breakdowns, a very good (and probably severely annoyed...but in the most loving way, of course) friend suggested I write all the things in my head down on a post-it and stick it up somewhere where I’d see it every day. I liked her suggestion so much that I decided to take it up a notch. 

Massive chalkboard wall (pictured below).  

And let me tell you, it was no easy task to get over the anxiety of turning an entire wall black after an upbringing of purely beige wall decor....but I figured it was time to “go hard or go home” (thanks Emi!...good motto). For the last month, I have been having fun drawing and writing and musing so I thought I’d share with all of you in case you’d like to try a chalkboard wall – I highly recommend it.

My "in-progress" shot did not come out well. This is the finished product.
Two coats are definitely required.

The fun begins!

My fancy crown...fussed over and re-done three times and then finally left alone.

Going forward and still in pursuit of my musical goal, I have decided that I’m kicking this blog into high gear and this very attractive wall is going to help me keep organized amongst the very busy daily grind.

 I will be posting another video in a few days so stay tuned. As always, thank you all for the support!
