New Chalk Wall In The Works!!

 

I decided to change up our chalkboard wall and boy was it hard to erase this masterpiece!!

Our daughter’s boyfriend created this amazing chalk wall for us and I am totally in love with it but decided it was time for a change.

See all the details on that post here

I have been looking and pinning ideas on Pinterest and loved the idea of some type of crown molding, maybe some antlers, possibly a table and a lamp.

Here are a few ideas I found.

Antlers!

YES PLEASE!

So I started erasing and erasing and erasing and it was a HUGE mess!

I should have taken more photos of the mess!

I did snap one with my phone :)

Messy! Messy!

And this is what I have come up with so far :)

I hung a gold frame for fun.

And also included a chalk vase and attached some cotton to the wall.

And I have started on the crown molding.

It is a work in progress :)

We will see how well it goes!

I am no artist :/

I might have to bribe Lee into coming over and fixing it for me!

We shall see :)

I plan on attaching some type of hooks to the wall/antlers and hanging these super cute ornaments I snagged last year on clearance!

I considered ordering an actual bust but decided to go with chalk instead.

Easier on the ol’ pocketbook!

But I love the idea of ornaments on the antlers!

I found a place for the yearling heifer above this old ladder.

I removed the magazines and replaced them with a knit throw :)

The boxwood wreath I moved to our hearth room above the buffet.

I also took the swag from our Halloween mantle and shortened it a bit and hung it from the knobs on the buffet.
