Chalkboard Backsplash

 

 

To help ground a wall filled with nothing but heavy mahogany cabinetry, designer Shaleah Soliven ofThe Gold Jellybean decided to use chalkboard paint to make the wall both bold and functional. “We use the backsplash to write notes, and the space above the upper cabinets has become our designated calendar area,” Shaleah says. “Any grease splatters can simply be wiped away with just a wet rag.”

School days bring hectic fall schedules. Remember soccer practice and piano lessons with a handmade chalkboard for family messages. Use classic black chalk paint, or have it tinted to your favorite hue.

Inexpensive terra-cotta pots get a playful makeover with chalkboard paint; fill with everything from blooming bulbs to chunky succulents. Or use for budding seedlings — a chalk-scrawled note will help you remember which seeds you sowed.

Chalkboard Lamps

 

 

Create a convenient spot to leave messages for your little one by covering an outdated lamp base with chalkboard paint. You can even make your own print on these too!

Faux Chalkboards

 

These bookcovers might look like a chalkboard, but blogger Julie Ryan of Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss faked the look with black cardstock and a white chalk pen. The covers unify the stack of books and provide space for a favorite quote.

Continuous Calendar

 

 

Dedicate a spot in your home office to a chalkboard calendar. Use chalk pens to draw the calendar shell, then add key dates and appointments each month. This would also be great in the kitchen too!

Art Within Reach

 

Another option to keep little hands occupied while Mom and Dad cook dinner: chalkboard cabinets. Designer Danielle Colding painted the bottom row of cabinets with chalkboard paint; they’re just the right height for this family’s two-year-old son.
