Chalkboard - A Summer Day Project

Do you like Chalkboards?

I sure do!
That's why I was pretty excited when I got the idea for this one.
(Actually, when this idea came to me, I just smiled and said Thank You)
He always knows what gives me Joy!

Wondering what's it made out of ? 
We had gotten a (free) coffee table several months ago and even though we liked it, 
we both decided it was just to big for our small space.

Buzz removed the top, then I did my part.

We Love The Way It Looks!

and are thinking of all the fun ways we can use it
(especially during the holidays)
  If it were yours, 
what would you write on it? 

Time to Party
(Hope you'll come along)


  1. Oh- That looks great, Geneva. Write on it? How about Geneva is a Genuis!!!! lol xo Diana

  2. Ummm-you might want to spell genius right- I see I didn't in he comment above-lol It's true- blondes do have more mean fun- xo Diana

  3. Oh Geneva....that is fabulous! I love it and I love using items in unexpected ways. Makes for a one of a kind...:)Thanks for sharing!

    1. I think Summer Days was the perfect thing to write on it for now! Just think of all the possibilities though...:)

    2. Thank you Vicky! The possibilities are endless... We're going to have so much fun!

  4. I wouldn't have guessed a coffee table top but I love it!

  5. I think it looks wonderful! What a great idea! My daughter is looking for something to write on hers, too! lol!


  6. I have chalkboard love. Yours is wonderful.
    Smiles, Dottie

    1. Thank You Dottie ... Always appreciate you stopping by!

  7. I have chalkboards made from old mirrors - I would have NEVER have thought of using the top of a coffee table!!!!!!!!!
    It's spectacular - love love love it !!!
    COFFEE served here would be great on it LMHO

  8. What a great re-purpose. The shape is perfect, evokes French country style. I think I would write "Joie de Vivre", (the joy of living or exultation of spirit). That is the embodiment of your home.

    1. Thank You Theresa ... "Joie de Vivre" is a wonderful idea for my new chalkboard!!!

  9. Wow was that creative or what!? I love it and the ideas are endless.

  10. Oh, I absolutely adore this! Racking my brain, trying to figure out where I can "find" one....
    I might write, "....asi es la vida", Spanish for, such is the life. Then again, "How do I love thee...let me count the ways...", because, what's not to love about it?

  11. Oh any number of lines from It's a Wonderful Life (for Christmas) ...

    "Is he sick? ...No. Worse. He's discouraged."
    "Youth is wasted on the wrong people."
    "Remember George, 'no man is a failure who has friends."

    Just a few... I enjoy that movie, can you tell?
    ...Nice work by the way on your chalkboard. :)

  12. what a great recycle idea, it turned out great!!

  13. WOWZERS!!! I am soooo in love with this fun project!!! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!!!

  14. I love this idea! Great curvy frame for free! On my chalkboard in July it said 'sweet land of liberty' I think I'll change it to Summer Days now. Mimi

  15. Bliss that is the word I would put on the chalkboard if it were in my home. I love our blog. So many great ideas. Thanks for sharing our knowledge. I'll soon be tackling painting mobile home cabinets with wood door but other stuff elswhere. Yours looks great.
