Here you can see the finished product of one inset. I really like how it turned out. The paint isn't really brown but I'm alright with that.
I love that this can now the the place that I can write reminders, to-do lists, goals, and all that good stuff. I have left the two bottom spots open for Adventure Baby to draw on but haven't quite let her do that yet. Seems like a disaster waiting to happen. ;) I did however find dustless chalk at a local craft store so I think that is a $1.99 well spent in my book.
