A LONG while back one of my sisters requested that I do a blog post with ideas for chalkboard designs and messages. Over the past 3 years, I have been snapping pictures of the chalkboards I have in my home each time I change the design, with a plan to one day share them.
Now that I have an good number to share, I am finally fulfilling my sister's request.
I made my chalkboards from thrift store pictures and chalkboard paint a few years ago, but they can be found just about anywhere. I have a small board in the kitchen (similar here), a larger one in my dining room (similar here); and I also use a tall, skinny one as a menu board.
I have tried out the chalk markers that your can buy nowadays. This one writes beautifully, but if you plan to change your board very often, I recommend classic crayola school chalk. It is dirt cheap, and is super easy to wipe off and change often.
Be sure to pin or bookmark this post, because I will continue to add photos to it as I add new designs in the coming months and years!
This was from this past Christmas. My talented 13-year-old son drew the Santa.
I kept this one up for several months. Here in rainy WA, I need a reminder of all the bright spots in my life!
Newsies. I hope you are singing and dancing now.
Valentines Day. Or just because.
A little reminder for each of us as we leave the house each day.
I did this one for a bridal shower and wedding reception.
In the kitchen.
I love layering my chalkboards in with my other decorations.
More kitchen fun.
I did this for the first week of the art class I teach.
Another Christmas design.
