I just adore chalk board paint! It is not very expensive and you can do so much with it!
I love that you can write or draw on it however you want then simply wipe it all off and start over again :-) I can't wait to buy some chalk board paint this weekend and get busy painting!

So cute in a kitchen! I love the chalk pig!

you can paint the cabinets around the fridge

Or the fridge itself(one of the chalkboard "to dos" on my list :-)

Chalkboard paint is darling on a pantry door(How amazing is that pantry?!)

Another cute door makeover

LOVE this pic below!! Adorable stripes,awesome chalkboard of course,funky floral paintings and cool Union Jack pillows(My Mom and her whole family are from England so I adore anything British.)

The numbers on these chairs are so cute! I am a huge fan of numbers on home decor.
I saw a tutorial how to do chairs like the ones below here

This chalkboard is amazing above a dresser

or painted on the dresser itself

Love this quote border! Love the pink wall color too :-)

This border is awesome!

Anyway........... :-)
One of the rooms I want to decorate with chalkboard paint is my 2 year old son L.'s room.

This tree design is adorable

Love all the bright colors in this room.(Even though I myself like lots of white and some pastels in
most of my decorating. I am going to decorate with color in my son's room to make it bright and fun for him.)

cute train painted on the wall(via here)

I adore this room!!

LOVE all the 3d elements on the walls!! He would have so much fun playing in a room like this!

My favorite part is the chalkboard paint on the cute little door!

Did you know that you can even make your own chalk board paint?

I can think of so many uses for chalk board contact paper . So cool!! I have also heard that you can paint chalk board paint on plain white contact paper and it works the same.

Besides fixing up the house(like we seem to do non stop lately. lol)
We are heading to the beach. :-)
Do you have any fun plans for Labor day weekend?

Hope you have a fabulous time whatever you do!!



  1. What a fabulous idea to put it on a pantry door! What an adorable collection of pics.

  2. I love chalkboards in home decor. But my guy is allergic to the dust, so boo.

  3. I love chalkboard paint too! We are getting ready to paint our hallway by the garage so my hubby and I can keep track of all of the goings on with our family. Thank you for sharing all of the fabulous ideas!

    I hopped over from Britt @ Sparkled VIntage Charm's blog to visit.
