We have a new chalkboard in our house! It's rather large – 4 x 5 feet – and I'm thinking of it as a nice, big canvas for art as well as a place to write notes, mantras, and other fun things.
The chalkboard started it's life as an old, framed photograph that I
bought at a yard sale about a month ago. I immediately went out and bought some
chalkboard paint to transform it into what you see here, painting
directly over the photograph (it was mounted on wood).
Here are some photos of it in use:
I love it! It makes me happy the way a new box of art supplies makes me happy. I've been coveting a chalkboard wall ever since I saw Eren's at This Vintage Chica this past spring, but we just didn't seem to have the right wall. This seems like the perfect compromise. I'm hoping it gets lots of use.
Have you painted anything with chalkboard paint?
