Summer Lovin' Chalk Wall

A few weeks ago, the kids and I made our summer bucket list and posted it on the chalkboard wall. Even though so many people now have chalk walls, it is still one of the main things people talk about when they visit our home for the first time. One of the easiest projects, was one of the most impactful for this space!

My kids look forward to this list every year. We don't get to everything, every summer, but it makes for a nice blueprint and the kids talk about it every.single.day. This summer is the first summer that will feel a bit shorter because both kids will be starting elementary in mid-August. I know this summer is going to blow by and we intend to enjoy every single minute!



I painted this chalk wall about 18 months ago and it needs to be redone. I have been able to get it pretty clean with soap and water, but it just doesn't have that crisp, chalkboard look anymore. I will hopefully be able to put another coat or two on after this list comes down.



Do you have big plans for the summer? If you need us, we will be by the pool!

Happy Summer!

  7. What a cheerful way to keep your list nearby as a reminder of all the fun to come. Checking things off the list will be fun too - sounds like you will be busy this summer.
    So nice to meet you.
