10 Chalkboard Projects from Mom4Real!

July 16, 2013 | by Jocie (email) |

Hi, I’m Jessica, and I blog over at Mom 4 Real! I share home decor, DIY, crafts, cleaning tips and tricks, and tons of chalkboard painted projects. I know…weird, right? I have quite the chalkboard obsession, and love finding new ways to use it. Well, now that the cat is out of the bag, I thought I’d just share a few, ten to be exact, with you!


This is where it all began…the first time I turned an ugly old mirror into a chalkboard.


I used vinyl to make chalkboard labels and a stick on chalkboard for my refrigerator.


I took a large mirror from an old dresser and turned it into a chalkboard for my mantel.


Which I love changing up like I did for my The Notebook Inspired Valentine’s Mantel.


I used chalkboard spray paint to turn some wine bottles into vases.


I recently turned a ceramic tile into a fun cheese board using chalk paint.


I turned a thrift store frame into a message board for my desk.


I got a little crazy with the chalkboard paint for my 4th of July party for the kiddos and made a chalkboard banner, chalkboard painted wine bottle vases, chalkboard labels for our mason jar drinking glasses, and as you can see…I have chalkboard painted plates hanging in my dining area…oy!


I turned a picture frame that my neighbor threw out into a chalkboard.


And painted a dollar store platter to hang from a wreath hanger…as well as a yardsale picture frame.


I once painted some plates with chalkboard paint…they now live with a friend of mine, but aren’t they cute?


I painted a little wooden heart with chalkboard paint and some polka dots for Valentine’s Day last year.


My daughter Kate joined in the fun, and painted a canvas sign with chalkboard paint to hang on her bedroom door.

So…have you tried chalkboard paint yet?

Thank you so much for having me, I just love it here!


Thanks so much to Jessica for being willing to stop by and share her fabulous work. Love her as much as I do? Follow her on FB or Pinterest!

  1. I really love the piece you made for your mantle! Plus, it’s so easy to switch out for different seasons!

  3. πŸ™‚ you must be the chalkboard queen! I’ve used quite a bit of it myself and think it’s so fun. We’re currently painting a wall in our office in chalkboard paint and then we’ll be hanging an old galvanized chicken coop on top to hold all of our refinishing supplies! I figure the chalkboard will be functional but will also make the coop stand out!
