I enjoy changing up this framed chalkboard seasonally. Most recently, it had a spring time look to it. Now that the weather has warmed up-we’re hitting ninety degrees in Charleston this week- it’s time for a summer chalkboard. Gloria and I both live in flip flops for much of the year, but with this heat, it’s definitely flip flop season! I didn’t use any special chalkboard transfer methods.

Let me show you how I turned a thrift store plaque into the Patriotic Coastal Decor.
