My chalkboard wall begins…

i love a good home decor project…
and i love all things chalkboard right now.
what can i say i am a trend follower..
moving on..

I have shared with you my frame wall from start to finish.. (here, and here)
but with limited wall space in mi casa
if i want to add something new, something old must go.

I wanted a space where I could write a weekly memory verse, or a scripture that was speaking to me .
and I felt this wall was the perfect spot..
so time to say goodbye to my beloved frame wall…

I took all the frames down..
and yes the long oval frame with the TP art in is GLUED to the wall..
hey sometimes you just do what needs to be done!
I waited to take that frame down in case hubby was not keen on my new idea.

 

 
It feels all sorts of weird in here
staring at an empty wall is not okay
kinda of creeps me out really..
 
My plans for this wall are to paint a large chalkboard directly on the wall
and frame it with a hand painted frame.
Of course I created an entire pinterest board dedicated to the project…
 
I love the look of these hand drawn frames:
 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 
 

 

 
 

I used Photoshop to make a few mock ideas of what it would look like.
I only had a limited amount of hand drawn frame brushes to use.
I am not sure i really like any of these
but it helps give me an idea of what works/size/line thickness/ect

 

 

 

 

I am going to go and buy the paint tomorrow..
I can not wait to show you!

 

So what do you think?
do you have a chalkboard frame/wall/ both?
