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!
