I know there are already TONS of ideas out there for chalkboard paint and your creativity can really run wild with this awesome stuff! But, I thought I would share just a few simple ways my family has used it. Your local home improvement store should carry it, along with other colored versions too! I have purchased “raspberry” and “original black” and have loved both of them.
Idea Number One:
|Chalkboard wall in the boys room|
Paint an entire wall or half wall for the kids to draw on. We simply purchased some wood trim, primed and painted it, nailed it in place and painted the area below it with chalkboard paint. The project only took a few hours!
Idea Number Two:
|Chalkboard paint over a mirror-shelf in the girls room|
I had a cute shelf that had a mirror on it but the mirror had one crack in it. So, I painted it with pink chalkboard paint and turned it into a place for the girls to draw or write notes.

Idea Number Three:
Tape off an area (frame) and paint the inside for a space to write notes, activities, or in this case, workouts in my workout room!
|Chalkboard Art Display Board|
Idea Number Four:
Paint a board with clips attached, for an art display board that they can write on. For more ideas on making your own art display boards, check out this post.
Idea Number Five:
This was for a shower I threw for a friend of mine…we painted cardboard on the inside of frames to label the foods we had at the shower.
