DIY Chalkboard Monogram Art
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’m updating our master bath a bit, and I can’t wait to show you all the details!
But not today (whaaamp, whaaaamp) I wish I could and it is 90% done except for a light fixture that I’m
not so patiently waiting on. So, as soon as my friendly UPS guy, who knows me oh so well, delivers it, and I successfully install it without electrocuting myself (cross your fingers for me…) – I will give you the grand tour.
I’ll give you a little sneak peek today though of my DIY chalkboard monogram art! This is such a quick and easy project.
First step find some cute cheap picture frames. I found this bigger one at a vintage flea market last summer and the other 2 at HomeGoods.
The new ones looked a little too new, so I hit them with a little Annie Sloan Dark Wax to age them a bit.
Then I just popped the glass out of the frames and spray painted them with some chalkboard paint, I like Rustoleum because it dries so fast. I sprayed them in the morning and was doodling on them by little man’s nap time.
Sketch out his and hers and doodle a little monogram with some cute leaves and you are done. Even if you don’t have a ton of artistic skill you got this one, it’s supposed to look a little handmade (which is code for little man refused to nap and I had about 15 minutes to draw these out!)
I love the personality they add to this awkward skinny space on our wall and bonus the Mr. won’t get lost in the bathroom anymore :)
LOVE what you did to these frames… gorgeous job!
What a great idea! They are so cute!
Those are lovely, Kelly. I always enjoy seeing your chalkboard art! Can’t wait to see all the updates you’ve done in the bathroom!
Super cute Kelly! Love chalk board art!

Thanks Kris, they were so fun to make!
These are so cute and add a great touch. Can’t wait to see the rest.
Thanks Cynthia, hopefully next week!
Very cute addition to the bathroom! PS- Looked at your home tour and was wondering where you got your stripped rugs in the kitchen and entry?.. Love the colors!
Hi Molly! They are from PB but they don’t have them anymore, although Dash and Albert makes several that are really similar that you can find at Wayfair.com – good luck!
This is so cute Kelly! Can’t wait to see the full reveal. :)
Thanks Megan, hoping I get that light fixture soon – so excited!
I love it! So cute. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.
