There are many wonderful aspects of living the military lifestyle and for me living in so many amazing places has definitely been a blessing! We are fortunate to have a lot of visitors where ever we go...which I love...and this past Labor Day Weekend I thought I would have some fun with it all.
Our children are grown and living on their own so when they aren't home for a visit their rooms, or a version of what might have been their rooms, are empty.
At Lost Cay Cottage we have three extra bedrooms. I found these cute numbers at The Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, VA. I hung one on each of the door knobs.
I purchased a half priced chalk board from Hobby Lobby and added this vinyl monogram from 11 Magnolia Lane on Etsy. I took a little liberty with the monogram order...just because I thought this looked better than LCC (Lost Cay Cottage, the name of our shore house).
I hung the chalkboard on the wall in the central hallway...it had a strange metallic spotted look so I went over it with some Annie Sloan chalk paint in Paris Grey. I though it gave it a little bit of a weathered beach look.
My chalkboard penmanship needs a little work but this is how I assigned the rooms..everyone got a kick out of it and there was no hemming and hawing of who would be where...not that there would be with this super easy going crowd!! We all had a great time!
In the future we'll put other messages on the board as well as room assignments...we don't want anyone to miss coffee...or happy hour!
Or a nap on the sofa...
'Til next time!!
