Chalkboard Love

If you follow me on Instagram, it is no secret that I LOVE chalkboards.  I love making them, I love writing on them and I love looking at them.  My obsession with chalkboard art began when I helped with a gender reveal party and designed these chalkboards...


I have been asked by several friends to create chalkboard wedding programs, menus and signage and I absolutely love the way they all turned out.

I recently created these little beauties below.  I got the frames at a garage sale, cut and painted my chalkboard backing, and then refinished the frames in CeCe Caldwell's Santa Fe Turquoise and Spring Hill Green.  I wet distressed the frames and used the aging cream to add some additional depth to the colors.  These will be for sale at the Vintage Market at Rusted on Saturday...hope to see you there!

I absolutely love the way this next fame turned out.  I also used CCCP to refinish it.  I used Destin Gulf Green as my first coat, Smokey Mountain Grey as the second coat and then wet distressed so that both colors show through.  I finished it with dark aging wax.

I love chalkboards so much that I even used one to tell our customers at the Antique Mall about CCCP.
This was one of my first drawings and it is still one of my favorites.

I am now taking limited orders for custom chalkboard art, so if you or anyone you know is looking for something unique to add an their event, wedding or home I's love to help!
