DIY Home/Wedding Decor

Remember the chalkboard we used for our engagement photos?

Well, I'd lost the chalk afterwards and (besides online) couldn't find a store (nope, not even Target where I'd bought the board) where I could buy it. When I found gold Sharpie markers on sale, I did not know what I wanted to use them for but I wanted them anyway. 

The markers package said "best used on dark surfaces." On the way home from the store, I remembered the chalkboard!

So I got to work when I got home. I planned out what I'd write on a piece of paper.

And then I moved my vision to the chalkboard. I kind of went with it as I was writing and I love how it turned out! 

This could also double as wedding decor!! Since, however, black isn't in our color scheme I don't think it'll be used at our wedding. I do love the phrasing and idea so I think I'll put a similar design on cream paper in a gold frame instead. 


  1. I just love this! Such a cute idea. :)

  2. This is so creative and DIY-esque!! :) Are you getting lots of pictures and video??
