Fall Projects for Back-to-School

Now that the kids are heading back to school, I like to keep a list of projects to fill my extra time during the day.

 I ordered my first batch of Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint (hi, Janet!).  I'll be painting my living room coffee table this shade of yellow called Aries and I want to add a dark wax:

I bought fabric to re-cover my "leather" kitchen chairs (yeah, I didn't know the definition of "bonded leather" when I bought them, big mistake).  I like a pop of color, so I chose this "Dana Red" cotton from Joann Fabrics:

I want to fill up  my empty upstairs hallway with a family photo wall:

(can you believe this big empty wall even exists in my house???)

Finally, I am going to work some window treatment magic with bamboo blinds in my family room, and paint my son's room (he moved out of his brother's room and into his own room...I can't talk about it yet...too upset...whimper...).

Do you have any back-to-school projects planned?

  1. I have a big empty wall and a box of pictures that have been waiting to be hung for 3 years:) Love that shade of yellow.


Tell me what you think!
