Using Chalkboard Paint — 8 Comments

  1. Love it πŸ™‚ We actually painted our walls in our basement with chalkboard paint and I love it! When the kitchen gets done {notice the WHEN not IF} the bottom cupboards will be done with chalkboard paint as well πŸ™‚

    We buy skinny white chalk at the Dollar Store!

    • I saw some adorable wall projects in the pottery barn catalog, but Mr. Fix-It is a little worried that they wouldn’t be able to contain themselves to just the painted section! πŸ™‚ I’m thinking about using it on their dresser drawers too, so we can add labels.

  2. Thats a cleaver Idea! We took a window out of the laundry room and instead of sheet-rocking over it, I put a piece of plywood up and painted it with the chalkboard paint. Now its our communication center!

    • How fun! I really am amazed at how easy it was. I’m thinking about using a swipe on the kids dresser drawer-fronts to use for labeling.

  3. That is really neat! I am thinking about a project like this to hang in the kitchen for notes and reminders! My question is…with all the white boards in schools where do you still buy chalk?
    Thanks for sharing these ideas!

    • Haha! I have only found plain white chalk in our town so far. However, they just opened a new “teacher supply” store across the bridge that I want to look into and I hope they have some. We’ve also found fat, colored sidewalk chalk at Wal-Mart, but I’m sure it’s not authentic enough to please the Ladybug. πŸ™‚ She’s really into the idea of being a teacher lately. I’m concerned about finding an eraser too–everyone I’ve seen so far just uses a rag, but that’s no fun!
