Weekend Projects

The hubby and I had a very productive weekend... We made a chalkboard wall in our kitchen, and scrubbed the grout/tiles in the kitchen. Seriously y'all, our kitchen looks awesome!
The chalkboard wall was by far the easiest project. It's actually chalkboard contact paper that I found here. So you just cut it out, and stick it on! The hubby loved that when this cute chalkboard fad runs it's course, I can just peel it off.

Then there was the grout and tile cleaning. This was definitely the more time consuming project, but I have a sweet hubby who scrubbed all but like two tiles (This 8 month pregnant woman got tired...). So serious Cinderella points to him! It took two hours to scrub the grout and tile, but man, was it worth it! Oh, and this is the "recipe" we used from Pinterest, and yes, it really does work (I was skeptical).

Grout & Tile Cleaner
3 1/2 cups water 
1/4 cup baking soda
2 Tbsp + 2 tsp ammonia
2 Tbsp vinegar

Put cleaner in spray bottle, spray grout, let stand for 30 seconds, scrub, wipe off cleaner with clean damp rag. Tada! Clean grout!

The only downside to this awesome cleaner is that the baking soda leaves a film on the tile, but after a couple moppings, the tile looks brand-spanking new!

It was a very productive weekend. Did you do anything special this past weekend?
