What's The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread?


CHALKBOARD PAINT!?!

A few years ago, if someone was talking about a chalkboard they usually meant the giant board that sat on the wall in the front of the classroom. These board were usually boring black or a very unattractive green. In today's world, the word chalkboard can mean so many different things.

Stop wasting paper and check out these adorable tablets found at Peg and Awl are the perfect thing for taking notes. Leave it next to the phone for those unexpected phone calls. Leave it in the kitchen to jot down a quick shopping list. There are so many possibilities. 


Make some adorable greeting cards or party invitations like the ones seen at Morgan Hill Designs


Use chalkboard paint on a dresser and you'll never forget what drawer your jeans are in.
This beautiful red dresser was found at Isabella & Max Rooms.


Who knew you could put a chalkboard on a t-shirt? Whoever came up with this idea is a genius!
Wear this to an even and ditch the ugly "Hello, my name is" sticker. Give it as a gift with a special message written on it. Or use it as a holiday greeting like this "boo" t-shirt found at The Idea Room


Put a frame above your bed and write your sweetie a special message to read before he crawls in bed after a long day of hard work. Check out more photos of this beautiful bedroom at Design Sponge.


Martha Stewart found this amazing idea of using different shades of grays to create a permanent wall calendar. 


Jen over at Freckles Crafts uses a chalkboard to leave messages in her child's lunch box. How adorable is that?


Don't know what to do with those board books that your kids have outgrow? Paint them with chalkboard paint to provide hours of entertainment. 


Ruthiauda paints wine bottle with chalkboard paint to create some beautiful decor in the kitchen. 


Head on over to Smile Monsters for a quick tutorial on how to make these fabulous message rocks. Not just for Halloween. These would look great by the front door with a welcome message or in the office with words of inspiration.



Organize your pantry with chalkboard tags. Make your own using this tutorial from Lil Blue Blue.




These mugs from Wisteria are perfect for keeping track of which mug is yours.





Ok, I'm sure by now you are ready to go out and buy some chalkboard paint (if you don't already have some.) But before you do that let me share with you this wonderful tutorial I found at Going Home to Roost for making your own chalkboard paint in any color you want.
 




What you need:
- flat latex paint in your desired color
- unsanded tile grout (2 tbls for each 1 cup of paint)
- a roller or brush
- 150 grit sandpaper
- painter’s tape
- chalk

How to:
- for small areas, mix one cup at a time.  stir 2 tbsp of unsanded tile grout into one cup of paint, making sure any clumps dissolve.
- apply the mixture to either a roller or brush and and begin painting your surface.  make sure to coat evenly and thoroughly (mine took about 3 coats).  then, let it dry.
- once dry, sand the surface with your 150 grit sand paper to smooth it.
- to condition, run your chalk complety over the entire surface, and wipe clean.
- enjoy your new chalkboard!

Well hopefully that will all come to an end soon because we finally closed on our very first home!!!! We won't be moving in for a couple more weeks, but I can't wait to show you guys around.
