Verse of the Week

I have been busy in the studio making so many of these fun “Verse of the Week” chalkboards for the studio and my Etsy site… but then there was this drawer front…it has a beautiful provenance, once adorning a dining room on a shaded boulevard in western Kentucky…and now it sat on the studio calling to me… …The tarnished brass hardware and painted cherry front spoke (Although not audibly…but I swear I could almost hear a little ring as chalk dropped into the handle!) …it said “make me proud again…to have someone love me… so, out came the sandpaper & the paint (Of course, I was so quickly responding I didn’t take pictures…there was a talking drawer front after all…) I prepped the surface, touched up where I needed, flipped the drawer handle-upside-down (to create a holder for the chalk)…and then painted my design in chalk paint. A few coats later, I added the lettering…just my own whimsical style…  …And then the drawer took on a whole new personality…one where little ones and big ones alike could memorize their verse, or simply write it up there to make them smile as a good reminder each morning …and the chalk snuggled down in the hardware…waiting for next week’s memory lesson… …and life was good 🙂...
