Chalkboard Fun Video

I showed my husband this post from Room Remix and he was all for the idea of a Hallway Command Center.
This shocked me because my husband is not 1 to a) like change and b) do anything quickly. I was very surprised when 2 days later I got my very own shelf and chalkboard hallway command center. He even went to the supermarket and bought a pack of giant chalk. I need to put my own spin on it though and I am making my hooks from vintage spoons which I am going to stamp with our names. I think I am going to add 1 extra in case we are blessed with another child and if not I will use that hook for guests or extra items.  This is still a work in progress, as is most of my house, but I am thrilled with the results so far and it is right across from the fridge (that's the silver thing in the bottom left of the picture) so I can keep an eye on The Girl from the kitchen so it's pretty awesome so far!

The video (I hope it works) is The Girl playing with her new chalkboard for the very first time. She loved it and has been having a blast with it. She is even getting her shapes down pat and we worked on her numbers tonight. She is making me look like a liar (my mom said we did that to her all the time) because she knows her numbers till you ask her to say them to others. haha
