I Heart Chalkboards

I love chalkboards and use them whenever I can.
For my event planning business I use them at weddings and showers, even children's birthday parties.










And back when I had a space at an antique mall I sold a good bit of chalkboard painted items.

And I've got a few chalkboard projects going on right now.
A Door


A Table


And an Ikea frame that used to hang in Baby Girl's UT dorm room.


In other happy(Yes. Chalkboards are happy) news, I have porch posts!




I'm partying with friends at TOHOT

And Make It Pretty Monday

Love all those chalkboards, especially the standing mirror you have used for events...and the porch looks wonderful!

Sign me up for chalkboards too! They just draw you in no matter what they look like exactly. They make a room feel homey.

Your house is looking fantastic!

Ooh I so love seeing progress on your home, Lisa!!! That porch is going to be so welcoming and fun.
Yes, chalkboards add such interest. I even used chalkboard fabric that I covered my grand kids' table top with.
Hope you're having a wonderful week!
P. S. I didn't know that you used to have space at store!

I love the idea of posting a menu, but i often forget!! And I love using chalkboard markers, however I hate the shadow they leave when washed away! Love the aqua frame...

I love them, too. Wish I had more space! At the lake for sure. My handwriting is terrible. Come and do them up for me! ;-D

Very nice! I use to have one in my kitchen for reminders and I always got a kick out of the notes guests left behind. Teens were the funniest. I miss my chalk board days; the memories are great.

I didn't know you were an event planner...now it does make sense. How fun!!

Oh, love, love, love the house...just a dream place. Porches!!!

I am in the midst of party planning for a 50th Anniversary party at the end of September and I think I need to include a chalkboard. I hope you have a wonderful week!
