I am writing this post merely to help pass the time until I can put the second coat of chalkboard paint on my soon-to-be MENU.

{after first coat}

I’m tryyyying to be a patient crafter and wait the recommended 4 hours between coats, but the reality of the situation is that I want the last coat to be dry, the tape off, the chalkboard conditioned, a sweet sentiment sprawled across it and hung on the wall.

Torture, I tell you.

This is the look that I am trying to achieve….


I am loving the gold, ornate frame around a black chalkboard these days…


Once this baby is all complete, I will let you know all the steps needed to whip up one of these beauties at home.

So far, so good. Pretty easy.

It’s the waiting that’s KILLING me.

  1. Yes, you must! It’s so easy, but requires A LOT of patience! I plan to turn lots of things into chalkboards!
    Let me know how it turns out….I will do a little tutorial once I get the board conditioned and get my first message up there! Have a fantastic vacation wherever you are! XO
