Fall Chalkboard Art


I love anything fall and this cooler weather is giving me so much more energy than I've had all summer.  It's no question - my favorite time of the year.  It's the season that tips its hat to the upcoming holidays - adding to it so much excitement and anticipation.
 
Our schedule is now becoming hectic since we have so many shows coming up and we're busy doing more projects than ever before.  But, I love it!!  Especially the Christmas projects...hard to believe that's coming up so soon!
 
One quick little project that I completed last night is a straggler from my lot that I had for the Luckett's Spring Market in May.  I had a bunch of these cabinet doors from an old school for many years, and we finally pulled them out in the Spring so that I could make some use out of them.


I painted them as chalkboards and they all sold first thing on the first day.


 I did keep one for myself, but as with most things I keep, they almost always go to the shop for sale.  Cute and functional, but before it goes to our room....I just had to do a little artwork with chalk...

I found this wonderful design at Nest of Posies Blog.  I used it as a guide to free-hand and actually kind of love the way it turned out. 
 
 
I even added a little cup (an upside down bail pull) to hold the chalk!  Cute!

 

I think this household is thankful for the cooler weather on it's way.  Between baseball, outdoor work, and just plan being hot, it's been a miserable summer for me.
 
I know Tiger is extra glad that the dog days of summer are coming to an end!  I'm starting to see a little kick in his step this last week.  He's been really lazy this summer.
 


Hopefully, I'll finish the sofa from the last post soon.  I'm still looking for the perfect fabric and nothing is screaming at me...the drop cloth just looked too casual.  More on that later...but I still believe that it's going to be beautiful! (hopefully)
 
 
'Til next time!

    1. Thank you! I had surgery today, but Dean is taking good care of me. :) Won't be quite as busy for a while. Hope all is well with you and Bill, too!

  2. Love the chalkboards - they look terrific. I can see why the sold out right away. I am with you about Fall - have more energy when it's cooler. Kitty looks like she will be happy too.
    Have a great week.

  3. How clever to turn these into chalkboards! No wonder they sold so quickly. It's so creative!
