It’s not just me though, four of my friends are sharing their monogram ideas too!

In fact over the next few months we’re sharing some our favorite Southern Designs!

Here’s my Monogrammed Chalkboard:

You can personalize it to fit your space, by choosing any paint color and hardware.

Here’s what I used:

How to make a cool Monogramed chalkboard

One of the drawer pulls was black, I spray painted it a color that was close to matching the other one.  After it was dry, I waxed it with dark wax and buffed.

I used the cardboard “W” as a pattern to trace out a piece of cork board, two ways to leave a message.

Paint the outside edges of the door with spray paint, after it dried I used sand paper to distress it a little.

Paint the center with 2 coats of chalkboard paint.

Decide where you want your drawer pulls, mark with a pencil and pre-drill. Attach your hardware.

I used my hot glue gun to adhere the cork monogram.
