If you are one to frequently change out décor, you can’t beat chalk art. Jami from An Oregon Cottage found a piece of framed pressboard artwork from the thrift store and used paint to turn it into a chalkboard. She then used her tried-and-true chalk transfer method to draw a subway sign like those sold at Restoration Hardware. Before sporting this train sign, Jami’s chalkboard made an appearance in her Christmas gallery wall. And guess what? When she’s had her fill of the subway sign art, she can simply wipe it away and draw something new!
Last Halloween, one of Pottery Barn’s fabulous Halloween vignettes, specifically a large chalkboard, caught the eye of Julie from Lilacs and Longhorns. Julie knew she could easily make her own chalkboard and replicate the spooky chalk art to boot. An open back frame, hardboard, and chalkboard paint made creating the chalkboard a breeze. As far as the spooky Halloween script, Julie says, “It was very, very easy…if you can draw a line, you can copy this font.” Sounds like my kind of art!
This dresser from Connie at Sensible Redesign takes chalk art to a whole new level! After being inspired to make over an entire dresser with chalkboard paint, Connie added some festivity with chalk drawings similar to those seen in RH Baby & Child’s holiday catalog. This is a fun and easy way to change out your décor with the seasons or just when you are in the mood for something new.
