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!

much love, Susie
