Chalkboard Inspirations

  2. That headboard is brilliant! My husband and I go back and forth about what kind of headboard we should get, but I think this is way better.

  4. The family chalkboard center is a cute idea! The chalk board headboard is neat, too, but sadly I live in an apartment and could never do that. :(

  5. That headboard one is certainly a novel idea. lol. I've seen some fun tutorials where you can make your own chalkboard paint and even make it in different colors.

  7. I haven't used it yet either (I'm glad I'm not the only one)! I plan to try painting it on some clipboards first and then see how addicted I get. I also like the idea of painting label sized rectangles onto canisters for labeling whatever is inside.

  9. Have you seen these Chalkboard Tees? http://thechalkboardtee.com

    They're not made from the chalkboard paint from the store, but they're much more durable and comfortable. Check them out!

  11. We painted the center of our cabinets with chalkboard paint and used it for grocery lists, little love notes to each other, and just fun stuff with friends!

  18. I "chalkboarded" the tops of mason jars and pickle jars for kitchen storage labelling, a big board that my sister added magnets to the back of the we use for a chores list, and the inside of picture frames for wedding table numbers, and an old vase I found at value village!
