This ledge drove me nuts-o until a friend of mine gave me this huge chalkboard she had made for her kids. I let my kids mess with it for a while in the backyard but when we cleaned up the yard it had to go. I finally came up with this wild idea to put it up there. I asked some friends opinions and I think they think I'm crazy but I love it :) I do agree with them though that it will look better framed with some moulding or something.
I had such a fun time drawing on it, practicing my "pretty" writing. This idea was inspired by one of my favorite blogs, Dear Lillie and you can see her version HERE.
I just added some faux apples I garage saled years ago and my faux pumpkins from Michaels to what I already had up there and changed some stuff around.
I added some burlap around these candles just like the $30 ($30?! Really?!) faux burlap ones you can buy from Pottery Barn HERE. I love the warmth it adds with that lovely fall brown color!
Stick around for my 4th and final post of October decor!
