I love chalkboard paint! It seems like every week I see a new way to use it and can’t help but get excited. Here are a few of my favorite chalkboard paint projects I’ve seen recently, try them out and tell me how it goes! If you want to check out the tutorial for each project, just click on the pictures.
Make Your Own Chalkboard Paint
Before you get started painting everything you own with chalkboard paint (kidding!) you’ll have to make some chalkboard paint! This tutorial shows you how to make your own chalkboard paint in any color you want, so you don’t have to stick with basic black!
DIY Chalkboard Mug
I really love this DIY project. A little chalkboard paint makes this mug personalized and fun. Write your name, draw a little design, or just express ownership by writing a big ‘ol “MINE” on it!
DIY Chalkboard Wine Glasses
Perfect for a party, no one will forget whose glass is whose with these chalkboard wine glasses. Just write the name of your guests on the bottom and everyone will have a glass they can call their own! When the party is over, just wash the glasses and they’re good as new!
DIY Chalkboard Wall
Ah, the chalkboard wall. Paint an entire accent wall with chalkboard paint or just a small portion for writing grocery lists and other messages. If you don’t want the stark black look on your wall this is the perfect time to make your own chalkboard paint in your chosen color.
DIY Chalkboard Wall Decor
If you’d rather keep your walls free of chalkboard paint, but still want the fun functionality of it, try this DIY project! Just paint a board and frame it with the decorative frame of your choice. The result is something beautiful you can write on and that can be moved around as you see fit. You can use standard chalk to write on the board, or get a little more colorful with chalk ink markers.
