Up-cycle! DIY Chalkboard Sign

PicMonkey Collage

Hello again!

This week was a whirlwind!  We were getting ready for Quinn’s party and had a lot of projects on our list.  I literally finished up the free meal planning challenge and then it was time for house projects.

Without getting all boring on you, here is a quick look at Quinn’s birthday party.  I’m actually kind of angry that I didn’t get great pictures.  Her decorations were so cute but the house got packed before I could snap away!

When we bought our house last year, I kept the “for sale” sign.  I knew I could up-cycle it somehow.


I had chalboard spray paint so I added 2 coats and now we can use it for parties or garage sales.  Heck, Quinn can even just play with it outside… lemonade stand might be in this adorable sign’s future!

Speaking of signs…

For Quinn’s party we decided to serve the guests with a “build your own” hot dog bar.  It turned out pretty cool!  I figured I should add the signs I designed as free printables for you.  Just click here to access the downloads.


Ah.  Parties are always fun and I am happy to celebrate her second year of life (and the fact that we are still alive as parents #LordHelpUs) but it’s time to relax get back to work!

Stay tuned this week because I will be sharing some insight on a few fitness topics I have been getting a lot of questions about!

What have you up-cycled recently?

What hot dog would you have stuffed your face with
