Ah, chalkboard paint: Easily one of the best and most important crafting discoveries of the modern age, don't you think? It sticks to everything, always looks great, makes a big style impact, and best of all, it's so easy! It's almost always the right answer to any crafting dilemma.
Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite chalkboard paint projects that I've done in the last couple of years, just for some crafty inspiration as we head into the weekend.
Here they are! In no particular order...
Chalkboard paint on a grand scale! I still love my closet doors. What a great, easy-peasy way to deal with a whole lot of ugliness. (As I'm typing this, I'm eyeing up the door to my kitchen and thinking how great it would look in chalkboard paint. I may have an illness.)
Turning mean door signs into friendly chalkboard labels.
Chalkboard paint on a tiny scale! Kennedy has fun changing out these little signs on our side door with the seasons.
A giant chalkboard made from an old framed picture.
Something ugly, made beautiful in just a few quick sprays. Now it's a focal point in our kitchen! (I can't believe how tiny both Kennedy and Sammy are in this picture.)
A simple chalkboard tray.
This little tray/sign has shown up in countless places and displays around the house. It just never stops being the perfect space filler no matter what the situation.
How to make chalkboard labels out of cereal boxes.
I almost need to stop myself from making these labels for every basket in the house. So cute! So free! So quick!
Are you feeling inspired yet? Have you made anything wonderful with chalkboard paint lately? I'm always inspired by the countless ways that I can use chalkboard paint to make my world a little more lovely. In fact, I may have another chalkboard project coming up to share with you next week....
It's for Halloween and I can't wait to show you. Have a great weekend! Hope you find some time to get creative!
