What To Do With a Big Blank Wall

What To Do With a Big Blank Wall

 

Do you have a big blank giant enormous wall in your house?

Me, too.

Actually, I think we have the biggest, blankest wall in North America.

Truly.

You might not have noticed its big blankness because it’s cleverly disguised by the giant multi-paned chalkboard that takes up almost the entire space.

But before that chalkboard…..well…..that wall would totally have shown up on Mr. Blackwell’s worst dressed list.

At the very top.

I tried everything.  I painted it khaki and I painted it gray and I hung yard sale frames and then coasters and then iron pieces ……and nothing worked.

Kind of like my perm from 1994.

All ratted out with split ends and nowhere to go.

And then I saw a broken 40 pane window in the trash….and the rest is history.

 

So just in case you have a big blank wall……and no one has thrown away a window in your neighborhood…..I posted some creative ideas on what do with all that blank space over at the Lamp’s Plus blog today.

And can we keep the whole split-ended perm ratted up with Aqua Net thing……just between us?

I wouldn’t want the walls to talk. 🙂
