Well my friends, it’s officially Fall.

I’m not usually one to procrastinate, but here we are with what could be just a few weeks before the snow flies (this is northern Alberta after all!) and our entire list of Summer projects left to complete. Yikes!

I’ve had a list a mile long of projects I’d hoped to tackle before the warm weather leaves us and the snow starts falling (because we all know Winter will be here before we know it!). Unfortunately, we were having so much fun actually enjoying our Summer, we couldn’t find even a spare minute that we wanted to devote to anything even resembling productivity. #sorrynotsorry I had some BIG plans to completely renovate the exterior of our home, adding all sorts of charm and curb appeal. But, needless to say, not a single one of those big, grand ideas actually came to life, which means, here I am, smack dab in the middle of Fall, just getting started with things. {sigh} #itwasworthit

I shared some of our grand plans last week when I shared the makings of a farmhouse style porch and thankfully, things are well under way!

We’ve got some pretty concrete poured, some gorgeous new barn lights up, and even some new windows ordered (eeeew!). The comfy new furniture is on it’s way and now, we’ve got ourselves a super sweet chalkboard full of charm and character…

You won’t believe how simple it was to make! You can pop on over to Lolly Jane to see the full tutorial.
 
 

I hope you think this DIY chalkboard made from an old vintage door is just as cute as I do!

  1. Kristi, this is awesome! I’ve been itching to make over the old doors I have siting in our basement, but didn’t know where I’d put them–meanwhile trying to figure out some sort of large sign for our front porch–*head smack*. What a great idea to display it out there!

  2. I love this idea! I done a chalkboard in my son’s room and framed it with trim. But I would love to do this on a door.

  3. I obviously am drawn to the things you do! This is the second picture of yours I clicked on from a link party. What a wonderful idea! This is so creative! I am pinning this as a possible option for my craft room. Excited to find a new blog to look forward to, I most now pour over all your posts!

I can't wait to hear your thoughts?
