9 awesome things to do with chalkboard paint



There’s something about chalkboard paint that I just love. It reminds me of my childhood and days spent at school, all happy memories.

Nowadays it would be difficult to find a classroom that still relied on it’s chalkboard but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a place at home. In fact I was surprised by all the things that I could use it for and have a tin of chalkboard paint waiting for delivery as we speak.

It took me ages to narrow it down to my 9 favourites because it’s so versatile but here’s what I’ve picked:




Jar label by Cape27

Cheese board by Wit & Whistle

Chalkboard mugs by Shelterness

Plant markers by Stitchcake

Coasters by Westermanfam

Plant pot by Scissors & Spatulas

Gift tag by Rusticblend

Chalkboard wall by Desire to Inspire

Play table by I Heart Organizing

So far I’ve decided I’m definitely painting one of our kitchen walls with it and making some jar labels, then I’ll see how much is left for another project.

If you’re looking for some more ideas Pinterest is always the place to go. Do let me know if you try any of them!

      I’ll be sure to post photos on my blog when it’s done. (I’m at alifeofgeekery.blogspot.co.uk ) I wonder how hard it would be to paint over when we came to redecorate?

    Such cute ideas. I love the car table.

  5. Robin says:

    All cool ideas. One of the shows that my kids watch on the Disney Channel (Good Luck Charlie) has the familys fridge painted with chalkboard paint and they write notes & keep their calendar on it. I always think to myself what a great idea that would be.

    • Vicki says:

      That would be such a cool way to update a tired looking fridge!

  6. Brandy says:

    How fun. I agree I’d LOVE to have a wall in my kitchen with just chalkboard paint.

  7. Sara says:

    I love the idea of chalkboard “things.” I remember seeing a chalkboard wall that kids could grow on!

  8. I love chalkboard paint. I have never personally used it but that’s out of fear. Fear that if I start with one thing I might do the whole house, lol

  9. I want to a wall of chalkboard for my play room.

    I love it too, at our old house we had a wall in the playroom painted with it.

  17. These are great ideas! I’ve been looking into the chalkboard spray paint since it’s a little more budget friendly but so many customizable options.

  18. These are all GREAT ideas! I’m so boring- the only one I’d thought of was painting a door or the walls. I love all the different uses!
