{diy : chalkboard}

my latest obsession is finding an old frame to make a giant chalkboard for my entryway in my town home. yesterday- i found one at thrift king! on sale for 8.99 and such good quality. ever since i saw these gorgeous chalkboards on pinterest- i've been dying to make my own. thanks to my husbands help for getting the mirror out, we successfully made the most beautiful yellow chalkboard, which currently has various christmas words :) i cannot wait to use it for checklists & inspiration quotes. i sort of want to make more & smaller ones for photo sessions.  


  1. What a transformation! I only wish I was talented enough to make something like this.
    I received the headband today and it is so darling. My blog for Wednesday is showcasing your headband with a link back to your blog and a mention of your felt ornament giveaway.

    Thank You

  2. Okay, not gonna lie--lil jealous of this amazzzzing find and transformation. Thank goodness you are my sis and I cannot be that jealous--heheh! & peep that comment from sweet, Paulette! I love that your headband will be showcased :) Love you!

  3. I did something similar with an old frame I found in the garbage! But I made a white board out of it. Nice job! New follower from Wednesday blog hop.
