I'm back! From forgetting my adapter cord for my camera at my parent's house to my computer's ac charger ripping into two, it's been impossible to post anything. I have quite a few projects waiting in the wing, but I thought I'd first share my most recent Houzz project - making my own chalkboard paint.
Chalkboard paint is popular thanks to its blend of sentiment, whimsy and
practicality. Whether it's painted on walls, furniture or appliances,
chalkboard paint has certainly come a long way from the basic green or
slate gray boards used in schools.
I love the use of chalkboard
paint in unexpected ways — like on the back of a kitchen island or in
place of a headboard — but I'm also a classic girl at heart and a fan of
the simple chalkboard. The recent transformation of my son's nursery to
big kid room had me painting stripes, and I couldn't resist throwing a chalkboard into the mix. Check out Luke's room transformation here.
And to learn how to make your own chalkboard paint in three easy steps check out my latest Houzz Ideabook.
So what about you guys? Have you painted a board, wall or maybe a fridge in chalkboard paint? I'd love to see the results.
