Lemonade anyone?

There's nothing better than a cold lemonade on a hot summer day. It brings to mind warm nights on the front porch swing chasing lightning bugs. So, to remind me of my childhood summers, I created this chalk art.

To make this I enlarged the image of an antique lemonade stand sign to the size of my blackboard and printed it. Next, I rubbed the back of the printout with chalk. Then I taped the copy to my board and traced over it. Now that the image is transferred to the blackboard, all I had  to do is fill in the letters and erase stray marks.

I placed my finished sign over my cabinets in my kitchen.
