Chalkboard Countdown Sign

Good Monday morning chickies!  I hope you had a great weekend!

Prince Charming and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary yesterday!  I can't believe it's been 18 years, it seriously feels like it was just yesterday!  Ahh!  We had a really nice dinner for two at his favorite restaurant.

Last week I got a request for a very special countdown sign that my customer will give as a gift for a couple of kiddos to countdown until their Daddy comes home from being deployed.

As soon as I got the request, my head started spinning with ideas.  I was sooo excited!

Here's what I came up with...

I took an 11"x11" piece of pine and painted it Rustoleum Oregano, which kinda resembles a military green.  I used a 6"x6" piece of 1/4" mdf and painted it with chalkboard paint.

I added the lettering in black vinyl and finished it all off with a "holder" for chalk...which btw is nothing more than a cabinet handle turned upside down!

I think it looks really cute!  So cute that I decided to offer it in my Etsy shop!  As a big thanks for our military families, I'm offering 10% off on the purchase of each of these signs!  Coupon code: BIGTHANKS

Have a great day chickies!
