The writing on the wall...

Lately I've been working on a few DIY projects that have added a little personalization to the house and the tiniest bit of organization. 

I've been saving inspiration photos of chalkboards and chalkboard walls for awhile.  They are hot right now, I know.  I try not to do too many trends, but I do think chalkboards have a very classic, nostalgic feel to them.  It makes me think of elementary school, the first day of school, handwriting practice, tiny desks all in a row, brown lunch sacks, kickball, the last day of school, etc.  Mostly great memories...

I decided a chalkboard in the house was a fun way to bring a little whimsy and an easy way for Josh and I to have little fun with each other especially with hectic schedules.  I found a few inspiration photos to win Josh over on a absolute need for one.

Chalkboard frames found on Pinterest

Fun, right?  I know!  I'll give you the details of ours and how we made it tomorrow. 

The final inspiration photo that made me smile...

Don't you just love that!?  Me too.  See you tomorrow!



  1. I can't wait to see what its like! I'm sure you & Josh will have a lot of fun with it!

  2. Love it! Korbin and I got one but we keep forgetting to write on it ha-Court
