Farmhouse Style Ikea DIY Towel | 15 Days of Chalking, Part 4

More than 15 days worth.  I’m working on a few non-chalk projects also, so my craft space is overflowing with projects in the works. My husband and I talked about adding a door between my craft space (formerly my guest house) and my connected junkshop.  That would give me a ton of space. {Read More}
