I’ve got another great guest poster this week! Based on all the pinning you did last week, I’m guessing you LOVED the DIY Koozies that Katie from View from the Fridge shared here. I hope you show Bette from Somerset Lane the same love!
If you are a regular reader, you may remember that Bette did an interview with me on her blog several weeks ago. She has a great series called Feature Friday that highlights a different blogger each week. I always look forward to seeing who is interviewed!
She also shares great recipes and home posts, like her office area makeover.
Now that the introductions are out of the way, here is Bette with a great printable tutorial for us – I can’t wait to try it! PS: The links below to PicMonkey are affiliate links.

Hi A Prudent Life readers! I’m Bette and I blog at Somerset Lane. I like to decorate my home inexpensively so that I can save our pennies for more important things, like kitchen renovations. One thing that I do is create my own art, so that I don’t feel guilty when I change it up the following month when I change my mind. I do that a lot. These days, I’m loving the look of the chalkboard effect and I wanted an “art piece” for my home that had the chalkboard background, without getting my hands messy with paint and chalk. 😉
So I played around in Picmonkey and came up with my own “Pièce de résistance“.
Are you ready to create your own?
Step 1: Open Up PicMonkey and choose “Design”. Now choose the size you would like your canvas. I used the 8×10 to fit my frame.
Step 2: In “Editor” choose Themes (the apple at the very bottom). Now choose the “school” theme.
Scroll down until you find “Boards” you will then see the chalkboard effect. Hit apply.
Step 3: The next big step is choosing your saying and fonts.
I chose white. I like my chalk to be white. 😉
You can play around and use different fonts and sizes to get the look that you want.
There are beautiful sayings on the Internet, and you can use this “art” for any room of the house.
Here’s my master piece by my front door…
