Inspiration Chalk Board

I’m going to go ahead and admit it: I’m addicted to Pinterest. I eat it up. All of it. Every ridiculous pin is an opportunity to try something new and in the process, I’ve found a few gems along the way.

Not only am I eating my way through Pinterest, those motivational quote pins that show up everywhere are my secret little weapon. It’s cheesy, but I love them. Enter: entire “Get Inspired” board.


These inspirational little sayings have been just what I need over the past three months. Who knew a social platform could motivate you through an injury (I’m apparently drinking the KoolAid)?! Couple the inspirational posts with my latest obsession of all things “chalk” (just look at my sister’s baby shower) and I’m going to get crafty DAMMIT.

I stumbled upon a framed chalkboard for $12 at TJ Maxx and I couldn’t pass it up — this would be my inspirational quote board! I hung my affordable little find in the kitchen and plan on updating it with whatever quote strikes my fancy.

I can’t totally take the credit for these; I found the look and feel on Pinterest and just copied it. But I am madly in love with this interchangeable piece for the kitchen/living room and that’s just what Pinterest is for: inspiration.

Oh, and if you’re wondering how to get the chalk to actually show up vibrantly, here’s my little secret: chalk markers! Don’t even think about using actual chalk. It won’t work. I recommend investing in the full set as the colors are vibrant, yet pearly. A perfect set for indoor decor (…like I know what I’m talking about when it comes to interior design).

What are your favorite inspirational quotes?

Happy Running!
