A change is as good as a holiday.....Right???

I am very excited that I was able to spend the first few days of Spring cleaning my house with the help of my mum! Man, that women loves to clean!!!

My house is now sparkling and smells lovely and is ready for the beautiful weather that is coming!

During my spring clean I decided to turn the bottom of my fridge into a blackboard. My fridge is older than I am. It was my mum and dad's when they first got married. It still works like new but it looks its age.

So I gave it a bit of clean, then an under coat.

Then a few coats of blackboard paint and voila.

I think the boys are more excited than I am about the new blackboard. Now to print some photos to make the top of the fridge pretty. 
Next is the area where the boys keep there school bags.
See you next time

That's SO great! We have a blackboard decal on our fridge that we use for grocery lists and notes. This take THAT to the next level. Love it.

Nice. I just did a wall in our laundry blue, but you've left me thinking that if our fridge was older... but then, why should we have to wait until it's old?!
