Last post I mentioned we were in the process of making our A-Frame sign; well friends, it's complete! Husband used wood that we already had, primed it, and painted it with 2 coats of chalkboard paint.
 We used chalk marker to write on our sidewalk sign. It's so much easier & precise. PLUS I hate chalk. It makes me cringe!! Just thinking about it is making me make a weird face and squirm! 
So, yes, I love chalk marker. 


  1. What!? There is such a thing as chalk markers? Nothing else left to be desired! :)

    Love what can be done with chalk, but so hate the dust it leaves behind... I can only imagine the fun you'll have changing up the sign (everyday?)

    In another life I'd like to excel in calligraphy & be a traveling A-Frame sign artist.

    1. I imagine we'll change it daily! I wish you could do that in this life and fly here and do our sign. My handwriting is not cool.

  2. I hate chalk too! At school I used to buy tile board from Home Depot to cover my chalkboards. That way I could use dry erase markers. But my room this year already had white boards instead of chalkboards... thank goodness! Love how the sign turned out!

  3. I've never used chalk markers before! Must try. Also, what a talented hubby you have! :)

  4. I like! I've never heard of chalk markers but I want to try them now!

  5. I hate using chalk too, so this is really cool. Didn't know about it.

  6. How cool! Your chalk board looks great and I'm adding the chalk markers to my 'can't live without' list!!

  7. Love Chalk Markers, I use them on my board at our shop! They are a bit more pricey compared to chalk...but of course I had to have every color. Smooth writing/ minus the dust!

  8. My mom was a teacher, and when asked why, she would say that she loved the smell of chalk. WHAT?! Ridiculous. I agree with you completely.

    I couldn't resist a cute and clever sign like that!

  9. This looks awesome! I so wish I could make a trip to Enid to see it in person!
    I'm the same way with chalk...ugh! Whoever invented the markers deserves a big hug...LOL :)

  10. I love these markers! How awesome.... I want to go buy some right now!

    I came across your blog on the Etsy blog team.
