Chalkboard paint: Beyond the classroom
My newest obsession is chalkboard paint. At one time, I dreamed of using the paint in every room in my house. Somewhere down the line, I regained my sanity and toned my plans down a little.
I just finished painting a wide horizontal stripe across all four walls in my son’s bedroom. Whether its drawings or homework to-do lists, it has added functionality along with a coolness factor. The next obvious place for chalkboard paint is the kitchen. Shopping lists, dinner plans, family schedules…the list goes on. However, for this room, I really was looking for something less predictable than just painting an area on the wall.
So, I hit the internet looking for inspiration. With a new vision, I hit Goodwill for an item that I see every time I go in. I always pass by them, never thinking of what I could do with them, but not today. Silver platters. I found two, one round and one more oval in shape with handles.
Or on your front door with a different message based on the time of year (or your mood for the day)…that could get interesting!!
