Love all of the chippy paint in different colors and this old latch!
For two of the sections, I made padded memo boards by stapling batting and then the fabric on pieces of plywood.
I slipped in a few favorite vacation photos as well as photos of an old steam engine taken in August of 1962 (found these at an antique store).
This piece of wood was painted with Annie Sloan Graphite chalk paint. I transferred this verse on by printing the words out, rubbing chalk onto the back and then tracing the letters while this was taped to the board. I chose this verse because not only is it one of my husband's favorite verses but I thought it fit the 'travel' theme of the room as well. I want this to be a place where visitors can come, rest and be refreshed by the love of the Lord.
I then wrote over the chalked words using a white paint pen.
The last panel is an actual chalk board. I used the Graphite chalk paint (about 3 coats) for this. Our son (a.k.a. Stinky Boy) and daughter-in-law are coming in a few days and will be the first ones to use this as a guest room. Why "Stinky Boy"? My girls and their sister-in-law love to hang around together and joked one time about deciding whether or not to let 'stinky boy' join them . . . and well . . . the name just stuck!
I hope wherever you live you are keeping cool (it's over 100 here today!) and enjoying a safe and fun Independence Day!
