Distress Block for 'Home' & 'Love'



Hi guys!  Todays blog is all about a process and distressing, also chalking....one of my favorite things to do!

I started with some 1" board and had them cut to 6" square blocks.  I sanded, painted (white & blue), sanded again and then waxed with Minwax - Let sit for 24 hours and buffed.  I did say this was a process, right?!  Now to the fun part, WooHoo - Chalking!!



On this side of course is HOME and I added some flowers.  Turn it over and.....Drum roll please



I was very happy with the results!  Added some hearts and leaves and ta da!  The Framed Home Sweet Home in the background is Chalk Couture too. (I have a you tube video for that if you want to check it out)  And I chalked 'love' on my wonderful parents wedding picture!

Here is my video:  Short and (I hope) Sweet





Of course it didn't stop there.  I stained this board and chalked our transfer with White Chalk Paste.




Just have to add some hooks and hang it above the window.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Chalkin!

Eazy Peazy Mac & Cheezy!
