Chalkboard Love'n Part 1

Chalkboards, chalk walls, chalk hands, chalk cabinets, chalk floors, chalk doors....
the list goes on and on....

So in tribute to the joy that chalkboard paint is bringing to us all, I thought I would share some of my own chalk inspired ideas as well as other ones I have had the pleasure if viewing.

Come along with me.....

Pottery Barn
Love this idea and have tried to think of where I could do it in my own house...

I did see a great idea on another blog (can't remember where) on how to do both the above ideas. Buy some standard canvas's from your local HOBBY LOBBY or other craft store and get out your chalkboard paint. In no time and hardly any money, you can have the above looks!

I love this idea for a faux fireplace. Great way to fill the blank spot.

Such a great and fun thing to have in the bathroom. Multi tasking on a whole new level!


Some of my own chalkboard signs for a quick and easy decor idea.

I'm not sure if you can get too much cheaper than these fun signs. I spent about 50 cents on each. (had the wood on hand already)


Tune in next week for another look at chalk painting. I have more of my own and even better ones from others. Leave me a comment if you've done something with chalk paint that you would like to share. Or email it to me, I would love to post some of the great stuff that YOU are doing!

Join me tomorrow for a We Can Do It Cheaper Link Party!

I love the entry way pic, that is exactly what I want for next to my front door. Though, I have been thinking of doing it on the front porch next to the door instead of inside the house. Don't know yet. But, I know I want a chalk board in my kitchen, can't for a how to!!

I haven't made a chalkboard yet, but I am always so inspired when i see others! I can't wait to see what you've done. I did do some containers a while back - they turned out okay but the chalk seemed a little "bumpy" when I write on it. Maybe you have some tips?

Such cute stuff! I am loving all the chalkboards going around right now! But I'll be honest I have never used chalkboard paint and am a little nervous to try, any advice?

Great ideas for using chalkboard paint in a decorative and fun way. I'll see you tomorrow for the party.

Come join me tonight for Time Travel Thursday or Tips & Tricks Tuesday. Both are in full swing now.

Hope to see you there!

Thank you for sharing! I have chalkboards all over my home, I like to think I did it before it was so chic, (but oh well, it is a great idea). I have two clocks I have been saving for our office, I thought it would be cute to have different time zones on them but have been waiting for the perfect label idea. The clock picture was it! Adorable blog by the way.
