Chalk it up!


Throughout all of our crafting adventures, we have found that chalk board paint is one of the “must haves” of our materials. It can transform anything into a unique and functional piece for your home, office or classroom. When you use chalkboard paint, keep a few things in mind:
1. Read the directions on your paint can. Most chalkboard paints require a particular amount of layers and drying time between those layers.
2. Use roller brushes for larger surfaces. Roller brushes leave less streaks than small foam or paint brushes.
3. Be creative! Chalkboard paint looks good on a variety of projects, so think outside of the box and have fun with it!

Here are some projects that my mom and I have made using thrift store finds and chalkboard paint.
