Family Chalkboard

There were so many things in Grandmommy's house. Mom kept asking if I wanted to take anything; well, of course, I'd love this antique desk and that gorgeous table, but how on earth am I going to get them back to Texas & cram them into the [purposefully] smallest house we've had in 10 years? Just not in the cards for right now...

But I did come across an old chalkboard. I remember playing on it at her house when I was little, and I know it's OLD. This chalkboard just spoke to me, and luckily, it was small enough to fit in my carry-on suitcase. :-)

I'm crafty & a great designer on the computer, but I don't have a creative bone in my body for home décor & accessorizing. A large part of that is b/c I'm too cheap to buy décor that doesn't have personal family meaning. I've always thought a tablescape with a message plate would be so cute, but I never wanted to splurge on one. Then I kept seeing make-your-own-with-chalkboard-paint projects on Pinterest...but again, no motivation. Enter: family heirloom chalkboard!

The kids are excited to change the message and share their own family notes whenever they want, and I love having my cute decoration that has true family meaning!!! ♥ Thank you so much, Grandmommy.
