Chalkboard Paint

Chalkboard paint can be used in so many different ways. You can create a dramatic, modern effect by painting an entire wall, or make fun designs (like dream bubbles above your bed) by just painting a small area  (e.g a splash back) or objects. The best thing is once you've drawn a design when you're bored you can just erase it and draw something else.

Here a section of a tree trunk has been painted and it looks incredible because of the natural shape and then the boldness of the black paint. Other object you can paint are the bottom of wine glasses, sections on jars to label them and cheese boards. I also like the idea of painting pebbles and having them lined up with quotes on or in a jar with patterns drawn on.

  I took a look on pinterest and found some inspiration.

I also love this example, where an old wardrobe has been painted and then drawn on. You can do this on drawers, tables and chairs. Also on the backs of doors.

On youtube, Mr Kate made a Christmas tutorial on which she added lights to her chalkboard wall. 

You can purchase magnetic chalkboard paint at homebase in which you can use strong magnets on. Don't forget that you can also get chalkboard paint in other colours, so if black is a bit too much you can try the other ones available.
