A Little Piece of History

I know that I have mentioned many times the old farmhouse that we lost in a fire and how my husband pulled apart each board and nail so we could keep a part of our house close to our heart.
We have used the wood to make farm tables, coffee tables and frames.
When we decided to make mini chalkboards we didn't realize how much of a hit that they would become. Our talented carpenter , who happens to be our father, has now spent many hours cutting each piece of wood and masterfully nailing them together creating wonderful rustic chalkboards and frames. Each piece of wood is so unique that a frame can only be made from one board or the edges will not fit smoothly. I just wanted to share a little bit of the process with you so that you can fully appreciate this little piece of history.
These adorable chalk boards are available in our Etsy store. Just click here to order.
By the way, you will absolutely love our newest creation. I will share it with you tomorrow.
