Wednesday Wall2WAll ☆ Chalkboard Wall Decal by CSN ☆ 黒板の壁デカル

Have you entered any giveaways on a blog? If you haven’t, you should try some time. I had never really won anything on a blog give away. Until this past March. I went to my friend’s blog, the Diplomatic Wife, and saw that she was having CSN Giveaway. I entered it thinking “I have no chance to win this”, and then the next thing I knew was that the voucher with the value of US$40 for shopping at CSN store became mine! I think I’m making up for my childhood negative luck because I never won anything.

I hopped over to CSN store and started browsing. The amount of goods you can find at CSN was just overwhelming, but it was exciting! As I was thinking what we need at our home, I thought of our new room downstairs. (There are photos of this same room on a post, “Extra Room Project” and “Organizing Bookshelves”.) When I saw Wall Candy Arts Chalkboard Wall Decals, the light ball lit! I have always wanted chalkboard in our room! I use the downstairs room as a craft room for our kids, so I thought that the wall decals would be perfect. I ordered the wall decals from CSN and it arrived quite fast. It was impressive. I’ve had them sit in our closet for a while, but finally this evening I managed to move the furniture around a bit (I don’t know if you can tell) in the room so that I could put the chalkboard wall decals on the wall. My kids love them!! I love them, too.

Now I have to think of the way to fill that big white wall between the chalkboard decals.

日本のブログでもあるのか分からないのですが、英語圏のブログには「giveaway」と言って、ブログ上で抽選によるギフト贈呈をすることがあります。人寄せの目的で行うのですが、とても賢いブログの読者集めの方法だと思います。もしまだ挑戦した事が無く、ギブアウェイがあるのを見つけたら、是非挑戦してみて下さい。私は、今まで何回かブログ上の景品の抽選申し込み(大概、コメントを書いて、フェイスブックでファンになり、ツイターでフォローして、といったことをします。)をしたことがあるのですが、当たった試しがありませんでした。それなので、ブログで知り合ったthe Diplomatic Wife(「外交官妻」)のブログでギブアウェイをしていたのを見た時、当たらないだろうけど、と思いながら抽選にトライしてみました。そしたらなんと当たってしまい、CSNオンラインストアのギフト券、米ドル40ドル分が私のものになりました!今まで本当に当たった経験が無いので、子供の時の不運の埋め合わせでもしている気分です。

CSNのオンラインストアに行って商品を見始めたのですが、あまりにも商品が多く圧倒されました。でも何か買えるかと思うとわくわくしました。家に何が必要かな〜?と考えている時、一番下の階の部屋の事が頭に浮かびました。(この部屋に関する過去のエントリーには、エキストラルームプロジェクトというのと本棚の整理とあります。)そして、「WallCandy Arts」の壁のデカル(シール)の黒板を見た時、これだ!とひらめいたのです。以前部屋に黒板があるの写真を見てから、可愛いので欲しいなと思っていたところでした。下の階の部屋は、子供達のお絵描きの部屋でもあるため、黒板のデカルはちょうど良いと思いました。CSNで注文してから間もなくデカルが届きました。届いてからはしばらくクローゼットに入っていたのですが、今日の夕方ついに、家具を少し移動して、デカルの黒板の位置を決め、張りました!!子供達は大喜び。私も気に入っています。

    Weeee! The chalkboard decals are up! You know what would be really cool? If you’re kids do some crafting projects and you can stick em around the decals like chalkboard boarders! Only thing is the stuff you stick in the bottom will collect the chalkboard dust… I’m just babbling and haven’t really thought it through! Hehe so ignore me. The thought just occurred to me when I saw your pictures.

    Oh and I can totally imagine one of the whimsical decals on top of the couch… perhaps some animals that will look like they are walking on top of the couch?

    Anyway thanks again for joining the giveaway… I’m so happy that you won! Till the next giveaway!

    Congrats on your win!
    I love the chalkboard paint! My girls are high schoolers and I painted the entire wall between their rooms with it. Their friends love to come over and leave their mark before they go
    What about magnetic paint between the chalkboard. That way you will have an ever changing piece of art!

  1. […] This is my kids’ current playroom. I still feel that I need to do a little more work on it, but this is how it looks right now. My kids had a different kids playroom before they had a baby brother. I converted the old playroom into a baby nursery, so I had to create a new playroom and move some toys for my older girls and some pieces of furniture to the new room. This room actually used to be part of garage, but it was converted into a room. I wrote about this new added room a while back in posts Extra Room Project and Chalkboard Wall Decal by CSN. […]
