After seeing a fun subway art project with foam letters and spray paint on my friend Tammy's blog, I was excited to make one for summer and possibly other seasons. When I went to buy foam letters, however I realized how expensive they are: $8 for each bin of different font! I wanted a fun summer piece of art that was less expensive. I could have printed something, but I wanted a larger piece for the living room. It was then that I noticed this fabulous find chalk board I had gotten at a garage sale for $2. I searched lots of images of summer subway art and decided on this one to fashion my board after.
With some white chalk and a bit of time I played with some fonts and sizes and ended up with a summer statement piece that was completely free! I think this would be fun to do in colored chalk or for a more permanent piece of art, chalk paint.
This was simple enough and definitely inexpensive that I may end up repeating it when autumn comes.
