Chalk Board Sign

Welcome! This coming weekend is so very special I hope that all of you have special plans with loved ones in you life. Today I want to share with you a redo that I have been working on.

This darling chalk board was one of the items that my neighbors have to me. I was so excited because I had been wanting one. The only thing that I needed to do was change the color. I liked the way that it is two-sided and stands on its own.

Here it is all done up with a soft blue paint.

I can either stand it or lean it against the wall.

I put chalk board labels on all of my glass canisters to give that cute chalk board effect.

Here I added some fabric to a couple of jars for color. Kind of fun.

I just have to share with you a picture of four of my grands that I live with. ย This was last Sunday all beautiful right after church. It was pretty warm that day and they would only let me take a few pictures. This is how they started out.

  1. I love that tone of blue-it’s so spring-like, like a Robin’s egg! The message of choosing joy is a good one, too. It’s just the message I needed today. The grandchildren are adorable, esp. the little one with the pretty purple bow on her head. Have a joyous Easter!


  2. You have such a sweet group of grands – so far we only have one, but we’re hoping for more. Your chalk board is a treasure – much prettier in blue than as it was.


  3. Love that chalkboard, and what a cute way to use it as a grocery list! Of course being versatile, you could use it just about anywhere, even to advertise a garage sale, lol! The pictures of your grandkids are darling! Have a blessed weekend ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Love the sign Jo! I have one similar that I usually put out on the front porch. I haven’t written on it yet for Spring. Need to do that. The kids are too cute! I remember my own kids doing the same thing. Have a blessed Easter! I’m visiting while watching conference.


  5. P.S. I was so taken with your grands I forgot to tell you how much I like he chalkboard. The size and color are great. I like the “Today I will choose joy”. That’s so YOU, Jo! Hugs, Nancy. And Happy Easter to you!


  6. Now, how clever is that! It is just the perfect size for posting lists or messages and adds a delightful touch of decor to the kitchen. Those kiddos are adorable!
