Those of you who are hardcore Lovely Indeed readers might remember our engagement shots from waaaay back in the day! Well, the bathroom in our new apartment needed a little something on the walls, so I dug out the chalkboard that we used in our photos and put something new on it.
I dug through my Pinterest board of quotes, searching for something cool that might be inspiring to look at every morning. Now, I’m neither an artist nor a calligrapher, but I decided to excuse myself for my inadequacies and just let it happen! I wanted really saturated colors for the board, so instead of plain chalk I used soft pastel sticks. And the awesome thing about it was that they’re really forgiving and erase easily (and I definitely did a lot of erasing).
The only tip I have for a DIY like this one is to sketch lightly first and have a slightly damp rag ready to correct any mistakes. Once you’re happy with the design, go over it with a heavier hand to darken it up.
I kind of love how it turned out! And it’s a pretty good reminder to look at while I’m brushing my teeth every morning. xoxo
