i love having chalkboard surfaces throughout our house, and always notice something else that could use a fresh coat of black chalkboard paint. i adore the resurgence of hand lettering, label making, and menu displays – all on the good ol’ fashioned chalkboard. chalkboard paint is available in virtually every craft store and hardware store, is easy to apply, and dries super quick. aside from the occasional use of primer on metals and glass, you can pretty much apply it directly to any surface you want. don’t like paint? buy chalkboard contact paper to adhere to surfaces you want to write on. what are some of your favorite uses of chalkboard in the diy world?
