chalking it up....




it always amazes me what a $12 can of chalkboard paint can turn a space or piece of furniture into....i'm off to spruce up taylor's $5 chalkboard table and then it's time to turn her loose w/ a piece of chalk and let the creativity begin...
while i have the paint brush out, i wonder what else needs a little chalkboard paint.....

have fun! when i move in july my new room already has a wall painted with chalkboard paint - where the desk will go. i am super excited! by the way, do you have any favorite blue paint colors? my new room will kind of be like a loft so i want to paint where my bed will go a little darker and then a lighter shade for the den area. any ideas?

I want to try this too. Would you happen to know if you can you paint over chalkboard paint with normal paint afterwards?

Oh, I love the old school house look.
I am sure it will be hugely used! It is such fun to draw and doodle...
Happy weekend!

For the last 20 yrs. I have loved CB paint. Brings personality to a space. I recently painted my kitchen pantry door. Gave some pop to an ordinary room. Right now we have the Norwegian alphabet on it! Terrific images (:

I painted my office in chalkboard paint... I'll admit, I don't use the chalkboard aspect of it all too often, but I think it'll be useful when I have little ones that need entertaining!

I love chalkboard paint. I am hoping to use it in a message center area of my new mudroom.

Love your blog! I laughed out loud at "while i have the paint brush out, i wonder what else needs a little chalkboard paint.." I am the same way! :)
