Make | Faux Chalkboard Art.

We have this corner of our entryway that I've never felt was quite right.  When I first moved in, I chose a big black & white flower on canvas to hide the unseemly circuit breaker box behind it.  It was the meh-est of meh art, but it was cheap and did the job.  So I've been brainstorming ways to transform it for like a year (sometimes the mind takes awhile).  With the proliferation of chalkboard-everything, I struck upon an idea. 


3 coats of Martha Stewart's chalkboard paint later...

and the addition of a Shanna Murray decal (which I have been wanting in my home forever, so yay!), and we get the:


Simple, clean and sweet.  Perfect for the first thing we see when we walk in the door!  And while the chalkboard "art" may be a fake, it actually is a real chalkboard we can use for grocery lists and such.
