More Easy Wall Art

While my mom was visiting a couple of weeks ago, we planned an outing for the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.  I woke up, excited to try a 'grown-up' outing with August, but was met by a truly rainy, overcast day.  Bummer.
Rather than just sit at home and bemoan the weather gods, we decided to whip up a quick piece of wall art.  I pinned this saying a couple of weeks ago, and knew I could paint it in about 10 minutes for August's nursery.
To make this wall art, you'll need to follow these incredibly detailed and precise instructions:
1. Find blank canvas in basement and unwrap it.
2. Pour some leftover chalkboard paint onto a paper plate.
3. Trace saying in pencil on canvas to make sure it fits.
4. Paint over pencil with said paint and thin-ish brush.
5. Wait to dry.
6. Hang with thumb tacks.

It couldn't be easier.  What saying would you put on your walls?


  1. OMG!!! You know how nuts I am about sayings. I'd have one on every wall but my favorite is the one in the kitchen -- remember it? "If you're lucky enough to live by the water, you're lucky enough." Great way to spend a rainy day!

    1. I LOVE the saying etched in your kitchen! It's the perfect saying for the perfect waterside house :) xo

  2. I have two favorites: "Let it go", and "You are far bigger than anything that can happen to you". (That last one was on a magnet that I got from GINC years and years and years ago--still on my fridge now!)

    I also like "Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."", but I think I'd need a pretty big canvas :)

  3. They're all so motivating, Haley- I love that!

  4. Remember when we had "The journey is the reward" in our kitchen - still have a plague in the guest room that says that. Let's have fun along the way!!
