Have you seen all of the Chalkboard or Subway Art out there on Pinterest? It pops up all over the place and for me it's very appealing simply because......
1. I'm a doodler
2. I love words and letters.
I would love to meet a "real" Subway artist (graffiti artist.) Maybe I know one and I don't even realize it. Maybe one of the PTO moms is an underground graffiti artist..... imagine the possibilities. Back to Pinterest. The ideas I have seen are more related to holidays or words of encouragement which are great and I'm pro all of this things. For example,
Love them. They are darling. So perfect and amazing. Can I replicate this? Doubtful but I'm ambitious. I love a good challenge. So I went looking for something to paint..... I've got enough crap laying around here at the hive. I must have something to slap some Subway art on to...... for sure.
Okay, look at this thing. A great metal container with the word "HERBS" printed on it. This is the biggest "HERBS" container I have ever seen and why do I own it? What kind of "HERBS" do you keep in a container this size? How much marjoram, fennel or sage can one kitchen house? Well, I feel I can get rid of the "HERBS" and doctor this bad boy up a bit. I love me some doctoring.....
So, there's primer. One must prime. Seriously, priming is important and clearly I did it when the sun was behind me.
Okay, primer did it's job. Congratulations Primer. We, Here at the Hive, are very proud of you. Now, how about a little Chalkboard Paint? (flat black, let's face it.)
Ready for some font? Can't hand draw it? Who can? So I chose to print out some Fonts that aren't readily hand drawn. Please. And trace. Tracing is GOOD! I chose the saying "STUFF and JUNK" it fits our life.
So Dudes! It looks pretty good, it's all chalk. I can change the message whenever. Chalkboard Art is not easy but I am so glad I tried it.
What do you think we have in the "Stuff and Junk" container? Guess away. Where do you keep your Stuff and Junk?
