Chalkboard bliss

Chalkboards at home are becoming increasingly popular and very DIY-friendly.  There are so many different options for so many different purposes!  This will absolutely not be my last chalkboard post...

1.  I like this idea because you can paint right over it when you don't want it anymore.  It is so easy ... just tape off and paint on the chalkboard paint (which you can even DIY now; there are recipes for it everywhere!).  Personally, I am a Sherwin Williams girl, and they sell awesome chalkboard paint there. Just be sure to ask someone about the particular surface you are putting it on just to make sure it will adhere.  Some surfaces are not meant for chalkboard paint, so you just want to make sure you have all the facts before starting a project.

2.  I really like this idea for a party.  This chalkboard window is great for writing menus on and changing them for dinner parties, kids birthday parties, or whatever other kind of party you may be having.  

3. Love love love love love antique frames.  I have them all over my house, painted in all different colors.  Even this one is not painted, I love it because the gold really makes the black chalkboard pop.  It is definitely a statement piece over a small table or bureau in the dining room.  What a fun way idea.

4.  This chalkboard is much the same as the one before, but it is in a different room.  I like this in the family room because everyone can take part in the chalkboard messages.  It can display a football schedule (as seen here), fun messages from one family member to another, or even rules of the house. Not to mention that it looks fab...
