Whew! What a ton of great ideas!! I tell you, the hardest thing about putting this round up together was figuring out when to stop. I could have written 100 ways to create a chalkboard. That is, if I had all the time in the world. 🙂

Hopefully you are inspired to go and create something fun this weekend! I’ll be finishing up a farmhouse table I’m making for a friend. It’s just like mine, so it’s gone pretty smoothly so far. Knock on wood. Literally.
