Getting engaged has immediately made me focus on making our house look more like a real house and less like a bachelor pad. I have been focusing my decorating attention on our “bar area” and while I am not yet ready to unveil the entire area to you, I would like to share one little part of it: the artwork.
I had this blank chalkboard that I had made for my Crafted booth (using this amazing DIY chalkboard idea), that was sitting in the bar area, staring blankly at me, wanting to be full of some sort of drawing, or drinking quote, or something like that. So I took it upon myself to fill it up. First I looked up some inspiration:
I started with a simple word, “CHEERS” to keep it simple and then got going with my design.
I had a box of Crayola chalk on hand, so I just went to town using every single color. I’m not really picky about color.
After I was done with the design I used my fingers to blend in the chalk. And Voila! My very own, sign to make me happy as I sip cocktails.
