home tour- chalkboard wall & letter A wall

if you follow me on instagram (close2myart) then this is all old news to you…
i finally finished re-doing my chalkboard wall.
initially, i just painted directly over the lightly textured drywall.
but it ended up still having too many bumps to be able to get clean lines with the chalk and was driving me crazy!

i fixed it by: skimming it with plaster, letting it dry, then wet-sanding till it was smooth and painting it again.
much better!

and did you notice my clever little chalk & eraser holder made out  of  a vintage match safe?
it works so perfectly!
here are some other cute ones i found.

i have to throw in a few more shots of my letter “A” wall – taken with my good camera.

i’m so excited, valentina says she’s going to be designing a piece of  “A” art  soon.
i can’t wait to add it to my collection!

  1. It all looks so amazing Michelle!! Chalk wall turned out great after a lot of extra work!! Love the “A” wall and I LOVE Valentinas work too!! I would love a duvet cover made of one of her patterns. Adding her “A” will be wonderful!

  2. I have been looking everywhere for ideas for a letter wall like that! And mine is going to be an “A” wall also 🙂 I am curious where you found your A’s at or if you have any suggestions of where to look? I am having a hard time finding different kinds..
