Wow! That is some awful handwriting. But then again, my handwriting isn’t so great on a chalkboard either. I would definitely test your chalkboard writing abilities before erasing hers, but if you can do a better job – go for it!

Eek…this woman charges for this? I agree that a 10 year old might have been able to print better. In looking at the chalkboard, I’m guessing that the art part of it is chalk too? So if you erase it, then you’re erasing the art as well? This is tough…what are you more willing to live with? A blank board or handwriting by a 10 year old? I would go with the blank board and DIY if you have time. When are you leaving for your wedding??? It’s so exciting that it’s this weekend!!!

Sharpie??? What in the world was she thinking??? I guess she thought you would just love love love them! Do you have time to run out and get other chalboards just in case? Ugh…this is getting worse and worse Doctorgirl!

She obviously didn’t share your vision. I say if you have the time, go for it girl. At least a little time in love will go into them this time.

oh lord – start OVER – if you do it (or your mom, sisters? bridemaids? find the one with the best handwriting and cry, haha) you will feel much better about it and it will be more what you want. Also there are things that are like chalkboard markers, they are MUCH easier to write with, and what I plan to use for sure.  

Beg someone else do to this for you so that you can forget about it. !!

Oh no!  I’ve had several projects DEFINITELY not go as planned, so I know how frustrating it can be.  I’m sure you can fix this!

I would reccomend erasing the whole thing. Spraypaint the board with chalkboard paint. I don’t know what you color/theme is, but I am sure you could find a cheap stencil and paint on some sort of lovely border artwork. Then re-write it in chalk using your fabulous handwriting and you are good to go.

I’m so sorry it turned out this way! I can’t believe she used Sharpie. Darn woman. I would try the chalkboard paint – but I know it’s never as good as the real thing. Grr. I am so frustrated FOR you!
