Chalkboard Door

Hi everyone, here is my first project post since my accident!  I want to thank everyone again for all of your kind, sweet comments and for your support, they both mean the world to me!

Obviously, this project was finished before my injury, but it is one that I have thoroughly enjoyed while I have been recuperating!

chalkboard doorMy husband took this old door out of a house that was being demolished a couple of years ago and it has been sitting in my garage for that long.  I knew that I wanted it for out in my yard, but it took me this long to figure out what to do with it.  I was trying to decide what color to paint it, and my friend Jackie, is the one that gave me the idea to do a chalkboard in the center!  I immediately fell in love with the idea!

As you can see, we decorated it for the 4th of July.  Some of the grandkids had a great time helping me,  I wrote the words and they did all of the rest of the decorating!chalkboard door July 4thDidn’t they do a great job?  What kid does not love to doodle with chalk?

chalkboard door summerMy daughter did this “Welcome Summer” sign.  Like I said kids of all ages love to doodle on a chalkboard, because if you don’t like how part of it turns out, you just erase it off and keep going!

This would also be a fun project to do on a door that you have in your home!  Your kids or grandkids would love it!

I can see all kinds of fun sayings going on this chalkboard and I also have a fun project coming up that will go with this door!  So stay tuned for that one.

Thanks for visiting today!  I appreciate all of you and your support that you give! 

Have a Happy Day!

  2. Precious idea, but Darn, I don’t have a door. :o) I’d also have to purchase the paint and colored chalk. I would love to do this!!! If I ever got a door, mine wouldn’t have to wait around for an idea to pop into my head, you’ve given me your idea

    Happy your back, your blog is one of my faves.
