Last year my mom found this large frame at a garage sale and bought it for me. I knew instantly that I wanted to turn it into a chalkboard canvas for my wall. See my step by step tutorial here.

It was inspired by the fact that my oldest son had just graduated from high school and we were preparing for his departure to college.  As you can imagine, it was a bittersweet day when he left and started this exciting life chapter…

  1. Laura, all of your chalkboard art is amazing!! I especially love your "by the sea" board. I've been to PV, and its so beautiful, I can see why you would want to have a reminder around. It wouldn't have dawned on my to use a chalkboard to share inspiration and good cheer rather than functional, boring messages. Love that gorgeous color on those hydrangeas, too, So happy to be on the blog tour with you. ~ Amy

  9. Your chalkboard is beautiful, and you are so artistic! Even if I could get some of the writing to look good on a chalkboard, I'd never get the art to look as pretty as your art. You've chosen such great quotes and sayings for your boards too. I loved seeing this, and I'm so glad to have been on the tour with you. laurie

  10. Love this project! Re-using and re-creating ways to use things in our home is such a good idea. I have a chalkboard wall in my kitchen, I am always looking for great things to write on it. I think I may borrow your Audrey Hepburn quote! Visiting you on the blog tour, a wee bit late!
