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?


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


  1. Susie, that turned out awesome!

  2. Very creative Susie! What a sweet gift and I love that they will be able to hang it up in their home after the wedding.

  3. 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....

  4. Oddly similar....

  5. “Women really dress based on their body shape. For example, Black Bandage Dress I’m very athletic. I have bigger shoulders and bigger bust Herve Leger Dress and smaller in the hip area. So when it comes to Herve Leger, Dirndl Dress for me it’s really about A-line dresses because it gives me a hip but minimizes me on the top.”While there’s no doubt that Lubov and her husband, Max, design for women everywhere, you can’t help but imagine her stamping Halloween costumes a mini-claim on a certain white dress and capelet pair when it was in its early stages. It’s a look we can imagine every woman instantly coveting when it’s available in April.


Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
