The Wonders of Chalk Board Paint!

With a can of chalk board paint the possibilities are endless! And I love using it on metal to make the chalkboard magnetic.


I’ve done a few projects lately using chalk board paint.

Bulletin Boards:



Dog Treat Canister:


Menu Board:


I’m attempting to clean up my craft room and decided I would actually MAKE something out of this guy I picked up for $0.49 a few months ago.


With a few upcoming weddings and baby showers I thought it would make the perfect little chalk board sign, you really could use it for anything!

As I’m sure you can tell, I’m a big fan of white, so I primed and freshened up the base.


And gave the top a few good coats of spray chalkboard paint. I’ve also used the brush on kind that comes in lots of fun colors, but I like the coverage and finish of the spray much better.


Add a vinyl frame cut with my Silhouette, a piece of twine, and an antique key and it’s all ready to go!



Change out the ribbon or add a flower and it would be darling for a baby shower!
I’ll definitely be putting this guy to good use.

  3. Hi! I just stumbled across your blog while searching for ideas on cubicle decorations and love this blog. Generally, I don't go to thrift stores but now you've inspired me to see what treasures I can find. On the bulletin boards, did you paint the glass that comes with the frames? ~Mia
