Chalkboard Paint Projects

It’s nothing new, we’ve all seen a million walls, tables, etc done with chalkboard paint, but check out these fresh chalkboard paint ideas! I’m loving all of them!


 This project makes me what to go out and get myself a piano, I’ve seen several of them on craigslist for FREE…now if I only had the space in my house! Check it out @ The Modern Hive

Make your own custom colored chalkboard paint! Find out how @ Martha Stewart

 What a cool way to organize! I love that you can change the contents of the box and name on the label so easily! See it over @ Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss

 I love everything over @ First A Dream, see how she transformed a screen door into this chalkboard! I love the size and how it frames it out!

 The always impressive Amy @ The Idea Room has done it again, check out her chalkboard notebook!

 These chalk rocks from Pottery Barn would be super simple to make yourself! I love to think of the endless possibilities these have!

 Globes turned chalkboards over @ Natalie Putnam. She used these for a Star Wars party to let the kids “create their own planets”! How cute is that?

Now I just need to get out & pick up some chalkboard paint!

    I have not (yet) anything painted with chalkboard paint. There is one thing I always wonder: are these surfaces possible to get cleaned at all? Or does the paint collect all the dust and stuff on it….? Even though funny and pretty I see it unpractical…:/
