Make It Monday: Chalkboard Paint Inspirations

Tis the season… for getting sick!  I have been ill on and off since Halloween, and this past week, it really hit me hard and I haven’t even left the house in five days.  Please forgive me, but that means I haven’t made anything for Make It Monday.  So, instead, I’ve decided to feature some great projects that others have made.

Ok, so you've probably seen chalkboard paint everywhere these days.  Well, just in case you haven’t quite figured out what to do with it, here are four great ideas to inspire you!

The chalkboard chargers at Tatertots and Jello are adorable and can be used for many occasions:

I love the pilgrim placeholders at Jellybean Junkyard:

 And the pumpkin placeholders over at Greenbean’s Crafterole:

And I can’t wait to try out these silver platters seen at Etcetorize:

Have you tried using chalkboard paint before?  I’d love to hear about it!



  1. Thanks for featuring my Pilgrim Chalkboard Hats!

  2. Hi Betsey, Thanks for stopping by Etcetorize and for featuring my Silver Signs project! Hope you start feeling better soon~

  3. Hi Betsey! Love your blog and sorry to hear you are feeling sick. I am so excited to see you highlight chalkboard paint. I actually used it to paint the top of a table once. The legs were spray painted teal with an overlay of black lace and the top was spray painted with black chalkboard paint. It was awesome. I also saw a mom paint a whole room in her kids bedroom with the chalkboard paint. They LOVED it! Thanks for sharing all the great ideas! -Jessica
