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!
My 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!
I put this door in the corner by my table and I love what a fun accent it is to my yard! It was a simple project to do…I simply brushed the inside with chalkboard paint, then when it had dried a cured for a few days, I taped the inside and painted the outside with a butter yellow exterior paint! Such a simple idea, but a fun one! I wired the doorknob on the back to the railing so that it is secured and cannot fall over on anyone! 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!Didn’t they do a great job? What kid does not love to doodle with chalk?
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!
