DIY Chalkboard Projects

Since it’s back-to-school time, the first thing that comes to my mind is chalkboards.  So today I’m talking about DIY Chalkboard Projects. Chalkboards seem out of date in many classrooms, but they are still hugely popular, especially as chalkboard projects. Most of these projects were done with good old Chalkboard Paint and a brush. It’s inexpensive and makes a lot of projects. Some were done with spray paint and one was a purchased chalkboard, cut to size. First up is a {Read More}

Pallet Frame Farmhouse Chalkboard

Pallet Frame Farmhouse Chalkboard Several years ago, I made a pallet wood frame chalkboard. Tutorial HERE. It was mainly used to put flowers in jar I had attached. The chalkboard and wood frame were intentionally left rough when I originally made it. It wasn’t intended to be used as a chalkboard. But I wanted to give it a makeover like you’d see in an old grocery store. This time, I wanted it as smooth as possible. The frame was sanded {Read More}

Deck the Halls with Handmade Christmas Signs!

In this post: Deck the Halls with Handmade Christmas Signs! I’ve been a busy little bee the last week.  I only have a few days until my mom arrives.  My oldest and middle sons will arrive with their wives and dogs a few days after that.  That means we’ll have six indoor dogs at our house on Christmas day!  I’ll be so happy to see Pico again.  I’ve missed him so much.

Home for the Holidays Christmas Sign & Placemats

Home for the Holidays Christmas Sign & Placemats Since all of my kids,their spouses, and my mom will be here for Christmas, I’m inspired to work on a few new projects. The first  project started with a wood frame that came off of a canvas.  I had bought the canvas to use on another project, but messed that project up.  Since the frame that came inside the canvas is great, I cut the canvas off and saved the frame.  I bought {Read More}

DIY Scripture Sign Be Courageous: Chalking Series Project 12

DIY Scripture Sign Be Courageous: Chalking Series Project 12 Yesterday was my firstborn son’s birthday.  It’s hard to believe that it was 28 years ago that I became a parent for the first time.  I feel kind of sorry for him because he was a bit like a guinea pig teaching me everything I didn’t know about being a mom. He survived though and grew into a wonderful young man who now has a beautiful wife. His favorite Bible verse {Read More}

It’s a Scripture sign based on 1 Thessalonians 5:18. It’s perfect for Thanksgiving, but the verse is appropriate year-round. The {Read More}

Mountains Are Calling DIY Chalkboard | Chalking Series Part 2

Mountains Are Calling DIY Chalkboard This isn’t so much a project as it is a story. Let me start by saying I’m not usually a raving lunatic. Usually. My son was at the theater with a friend.  My husband had just gone to bed (he goes to work crazy early in the morning). So I decided to go into my workshop and make a chalkboard. Just me, myself, and I.
