Vintage Chalkboard Inspired Art


This weekend I have a wedding to attend.
I love weddings.
I love cake!

So I wanted to make something extra special.

Something out of my box.


A vintage chalkboard would be cute. Right?

But.

Chalk doesn't last. Boo.

So I went with an idea that I had...

I went forth and made a real chalkboard.

I studied how it looked. How it felt.

How the chalk dusted over the board.


And I washed all of my work away...LOL


Above is the finished "real" chalkboard.


I then put my newly learned skills to the test and recreated "the look".

This time instead of using chalk I used paint.


It took some do'overs but I did it!


I made the ever so popular "chalkboard look"  permanent.


Would this not be oh so cute for a garden wedding??!!


No worries of someone walking up and rubbing it to see if it's real chalk.

We all have those cousins...LOL!!


After the wedding...

A sweet reminder of your special day to hang on your wall.


I just hope she likes it too!


I think I will be adding this design to my shop!

If you are interested you can email me here.


much love, Susie

  2. I have fallen in love with this sign! Trying to think of how I can justify having one painted and where I could hang it. Hmmmmm....
