I also redecorated by painting one of the walls in our dining room, a few days ago, with chalkboard paint. Not
a look for everybody, but I love it!
Our kids love it also, and ask me all the time to let allow them to write on it, and I will.
This was only the first coat, I painted two.
Found a perfect quote for back to school and put it on the wall:
I decorated the dining room chandelier with a few school ornaments I bought in Kmart, they were from Martha Stewart's Christmas collection a couple of years ago.
I realize the lightbulbs are different, but they're still good; as they burn out I'll make them match. I'm just embracing imperfection, I guess!!
The chandelier really stands out against the black, this is the view from the kitchen:
It's also a great backdrop for pictures:
