~LE CAFE FRANCAIS~
Sweet Chalkboard Sign
Just after the first of the year I showed you a really charming chalkboard sign I picked up at Hobby Lobby on the cheap! It was red and painted to look like an English/British Telephone Booth...
For over a week now I've wanted to upload pictures of where I'm at in the transformation process, but I've been sidelined with other things (like
supervising watching the wall removal in our La Chaumière de Briarwood). The top of the chalkboard was repainted with hand painted roses and the word TELEPHONE was replaced with LE CAFE FRANCAIS (French Cafe).
~NO PINK ROSES~
I actually like the phrase, but not the font. I used "French Script" and it always looks crooked to me (the lower case "S" drops) and that bugs me. Soo...I may paint it out in the future and redo it with something else...we'll see!
~ROSES ROSES ROSES~
I'm seriously thinking of painting a "menu" of sorts on the black portion of the chalkboard. I think this would look really sweet~ Maybe something similar to the menu on the right!!!
Then again...I may just leave it blank~ Seems strange not to have anything on it tho...
Now...just a quick update on our recent makeover projects...
Tomorrow I'll be sharing with you some pics of the opened-up, newly braced load-bearing-wall and also a couple of photos on what we did to camouflage the 'uncentered-ness' of the window in our den. It's ALWAYS bugged me and thanks to a tip I saw on CREATE TV I'm pretty happy with the outcome!
Hoping your Monday is awesome!
Love to you...
