My Valentine Chalkboard

Vintage inspired chalkboard

I shared a Valentine's Day chalkboard a couple weeks ago {here}, but I also wanted to share the one I drew for my front entryway. It isn't nearly as detailed as the other one, but I like its whimsical simplicity.

I am not sure what to put in the little easel yet. Any ideas?

Oh how I love to doodle on chalkboards! I love to doodle in general, but there is something so fun about getting my hands all chalky and just playing around with it.

If you would like to see more of my chalkboards as well as a chalkboard drawing tutorial, you can click {here}.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the chalkboard. I just painted a mirror to be a chalkboard so I am looking for ideas.

I have a little easel that I rotate things on:
a book open to a favorite quote
pictures
little art projects

Hi, I found my way here from Common Ground. I'm now following. Your chalkboard is lovely and so is your handwriting. That is a lovely vignette. You could always add a plate or picture frame to the little stand. Off to check out more of your blog.

And you did that freehand didn't you??? I love it my friend! I think you should add our printable to the easel ;)

That looks so cute! Your chalkboard is darling. I vote for something red on the easel.

How beautifully adorable! My chalkboard writing ends up looking like a 4-year old's doodles, and not in an adorable way. Thank you for sharing...everything is so lovely!

I love how this board turned out!!! You've definitely inspired me. I have a chalkboard in my bedroom and finally got round to buying chalk this week!!! Valentines is the perfect time to start.

I love your chalkboard, sometimes it's nice to just have something simpler although I do love your fancier artwork you do too! How about some Valentine subway art in the little easel?

This is the perfect design for my little kitchen chalkboard. I'm going to try free-handing it. Yikes, should be interesting. Thanks! How about a cute vintage Valentine's Day card below your chalkboard? Whatever you do, I know it'll be adorable.

Stop with the cute chalkboards already! I've been meaning to, but yet haven't made one of them yet. How am I ever going to catch up now? :-)

Gigi said...

Thanks so much for the info. I would put a pink or red heart on that cute little easel.
