**Published** Cocktail Chalkboard Art: a fun summer decor project

This is a fun project where I'll  teach you how to create, from scratch, a chalkboard and the art on it just in time for your summer gatherings.

As I keep practicing my skills in a June's brush lettering challenge from Instagram, I've found a fun way connecting my job, all the lettering process and a fun theme in a one of a kind project.

A get together party decor and, later, a must keep at home board.

Grab a drink and a chalk! Let's have some fun!

Cheers!
