I don’t know why, but the door to the closet in the living room has always looked like the perfect place for art and letters to my children. Every time Evan finds a writing implement, he aims for that door. I have magic erasered crayon, pen, pencil, marker and eye liner off that door. Finally, I decided we were fighting a losing battle. I told Doug I wanted the door painted in chalkboard paint. Yes, I broke my “no new home improvement projects until you finish one of the incomplete ones” rule. Doug spent a grand total of fifteen minutes painting the door and I love it! This picture shows the backpacks and piles of clothes ready for the morning chaos. Now I need to work in some shelves to get the children’s clothes and bags off of the dirty floor.
The children reacted to the door.
Amy: “Evan drew on the new door. He’s a bad boy.”
Tommy: “Evan did it again Mom.”
Noah: “Hey, that’s cool. Can I have one in my room?”
Sarah: “Whose idea was that?”
