Making chalkboards isn’t exactly a new-fangled idea but I am a simple gal who has a soft spot for easy projects that have already been perfected, in this case, by countless chalkboard-makers before me.
For me, chalkboards are all about the frames they’re in.
(Frames that were made by somebody else, of course, although I have been known to paint some of them. See previous sentences for references to simple gal and easy projects).
And maybe there’s a clever phrase or two, written in ... well, chalk.
The only word I could come up with: Scarves.
It’s right about here where ‘simple gal’ takes on a whole new meaning because for some reason I’m at a loss for words when it comes to writing on the chalkboards I’ve made.
Other than something subtle like “THIS IS A CHALKBOARD” or “I AM FOR SALE” or “I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING TO WRITE HERE,” words escape me.
So now I just take the vintage hieroglyphics route.
THIS IS A CHALKBOARD. *sigh*
