This homemade chalkboard is still one of my favorite DIY projects to date. My favorite thing about it is changing it up to say whatever I want, for whatever season or celebration I want. Since Thanksgiving is only days away, these song lyrics are one of my favorite "be thankful" reminders:
Since I haven't talked about this chalkboard for awhile, here are some updates. I still haven't found a chalk pen to try out (so far I've just used regular chalk) - anyone have a good source for some chalk pens that don't cost an arm and a leg? The jury is still out on the chalkboard contact paper...writing on it with chalk almost seems to etch/scratch it. It's not super noticeable, but I notice it. It's hard to get a nice, even stroke when writing on it - not sure if that's just the nature of writing with chalk or what. The good thing is that it's not permanent. I can always pull it up and either paint the inset panel with chalkboard paint or apply some chalkboard vinyl.
Along with the chalkboard, I of course have my share of gourds and Indian corn around the house...and the porch is still full of different sized/colored pumpkins and more gourds along with a small hay bale. I love it all, but I'm getting really excited to move along to Christmas decor!
