There’s nothing better than a little sand between your toes, am I right? Yep! Say it with this simple-to-do coastal chalk art sign below.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. Time is a flying!
Can you believe April is almost over? I can’t.
But I am looking forward to the sand and salt water. :)
Today I’m sharing with y’all one of my favorite little sayings….
….”Sandy toes & Salty kisses“…that I happened to turn into piece of coastal chalk art.
I’m a summer, warm weather, beach loving, flip flop wearing kinda girl.
So makes sense I would love this saying, right? ;)
And I love graphics and chalkboards too.
Ok, well, the “before” photo above is the back but hey, it looked just like that on the front.
Sorry, I painted it before I took a photo. Oops, but you get the idea.
I sprayed it with white spray paint, added a touch of glitter (because I LOVE sparkle) and then sprayed it with Minwax Polycrylic to seal it.
Next, I painted the inner circle area with Provence Chalk Paint.
Two coats. I let that dry completely before starting the graphic transfer.
I created this on my computer….
I printed it out and used the chalk transfer method.
Sounds professional, it’s not. ;)
Just rub the back of the paper with a piece of white chalk and then trace the front with a pen or pencil.
By the way, isn’t that sparkle pretty?? :)
So you’ve got your outline, now all you need to do is “color in the lines”.
I decided to use these Chalk Ink Chalk Marker pens to paint in the lettering. (I usually hand paint with a small artist’s brush and paint)
And wow, super easy! I love these pens and think I’ll be using them more often.
There ya go, another example of an old thrift store find re.stored, re.styled and re.loved…..
What a difference a little paint makes, right?
Ugly, old, tarnished and thrown out….rescued and transformed into a fun, sparkly piece of coastal chalk art.
Be sure to check back by on Thursday. It’s going to be FUN one!
I am joining in with some of my blogger friends and we’ll be sharing some “bright” furniture makeovers.
I can’t wait to share mine with you all. It’s something I actually painted 2 years ago but it’s bright and bold and definitely fits the bill.
Wait til you see what it’s made from…repurposing at it’s best. ;)
Until then! xoxo
