Your Message Here

My latest apartment accessory is an old chalkboard that belonged to my grandma. She used it for practical reasons, like tracking her monthly doctor's appointments. I decided to use it for more decorative purposes. I liked the way it looked propped against my exposed brick wall, so I turned it into a little grouping with a painted tray and a plant.

Now for the dilemma. I want to write a message on the board, but I can't decide on one. Should I pick an inspirational quote? Something welcoming and homey? Something seasonal? I'm paralyzed by all the possible options. Any suggestions would be most welcome.


  1. I have an inspiration quote in latin on my message board near my front door, so I theoretically see it when I leave my apt. "Inveniam viam aut Faciam." I will find a way or make one.

    I'm not a big inspirational quote person, but a little well placed motivation is key.

  2. Your chalkboard is so lovely! I would cover it with lists of all sorts...:) ~Melissa
