Our wedding was featured yesterday on Love & Lavendar, which is a super adorable wedding blog I wish I had been reading months ago! There's some great photos of some of the things I made for our wedding.
I wanted to share how easy it is to make your own chalkboard signs! For the table top signs, I bought some various sized pictures frames at places like Goodwill. I bought chalkboard spraypaint and simply sprayed a few coats on the glass part of the frame, and also bought a bronze colored spray paint and painted the actual frames (if needed). Super easy, and there's no real tricks to it..it's so simple. For the the large sign (which we used for our seating chart), I bought a cheap posterboard frame (with a coupon!) from Michaels. I ordered some chalkboard markers (like they use at Starbucks) in our wedding colors. I enlisted the help of my sister and her boyfriend to do the writing for the signs :)
Our other wedding signage were directional signs that were made from scrap wood that a friend gave to us. I gave the boys the job of putting them together. I think they actually stained them a darker color! Another friend of ours painted the wording on the signs.
