I have a thing for chalkboards. For the last couple years, I have been accumulating quite a few chalkboard items – all done with a small can of chalkboard paint. All of the public rooms in our house have at least one. Here is my chalkboard tour…
The kids look at this one on their way out the door in the mornings.
Right now – the door is being used for homework for the kids. The top “window” is my oldest’s spelling words, etc. and the bottom one is my youngest’s letters, etc. I use the chalk ink markers for the frames and anything I don’t want to wipe off with a dry cloth weekly. The spelling words and dates are written with regular chalk and I can wipe them off without wiping off the white frames each week. It works great!
and last but not least!
This was made using an old platter. I used black ribbon gathered to make a clean edge around the chalkboard.
Oh and I almost forgot – chalkboard labels!
I love the versatility of the chalkboards. Whenever I feel like making a change – I just wipe and rewrite or draw!
So – have I gone overboard?!!?!?!? I still have some paint left – so you never know what will get the chalkboard treatment next!
