Hello sweet friends!
I've being very inspired with all the 'chalkboards' I see all over blogland, which of course, you, talented friends always inspire me so!
Anyhow... I was so smitten with pretty Robin's 'Chalkboard Piggy' which she 'completely' DIYed it. I am NOT that talented at all to make a piggy from scratch, therefore, I cheater and so guess what I did!
Here is Robin's post with tutorial and all, just in case you haven't seen it, although she was featured in all the parties around!!
I saw a cute piggy cutting board on my local supermarket and 'light bulb!!'
I said to myself... now Fabby, why don't you just buy it and paint it and go half way with the chalkboard DIY situation..uhmm
So I went to the grocery store, picked up the wood pig cutting board, bought some chalkboard paint, came home and painted it and VOILA!
My sweet Mr. Living got a hold of a piece of wire and twisted it to make a 'piggy's little tail' and it came out so cute!
Here he is my little chalkboard piggy 'DIY only half way !'
|Didn't the little piggy chalkboard came out cute?!|
Very easy-peasy too! I just bought in our local grocery store a piggy wooden 'cutting board.'
Bought a black chalkboard paint and went ahead and painted it yesterday.. a cinch!
|Love my little piggy chalkboard and it is true, I forgot to buy eggs and ham for the weekend breakfast, so it'll work for a reminder too!|
The bowl on the wall is a salt container with a lid, made back at our own ceramic factory.
|The fourth shelf contains red transferware teapots, a tin with Coffee and another with loose Tea.|
Right at the bottom shelf; I placed my bistro coffee mugs and at the very last one I kept a row of tea boxes, which was purposely made for it.
|It was due for me to get into a little baking too, so I did our favorite 'Chocolate Marble Cake.'|
The little pig-tail hubby made it's just to cute!
I didn't clean the edges, I just drew an outline about 1inch and painted just in the inside.
Look at the funny eye I drew, lol..
|We don't have an open plan kitchen because I entertain, so I like the mess private... but the door leads to the formal dining area and breakfast room, although we eat our meals mostly on our former farm's table in the kitchen.|
Thank you dear friends for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day.
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties too.
