Using Chalk

Sometimes I see crafty creations online that look amazing but would be really hard to actually make, or require kit or skills beyond my own! SO I started a Pinboard titled ‘Craft projects I could actually do‘ to work through. I noticed recently that lots of the projects I’ve been pinning and bookmarking have involved using chalkboard paint to create personalised everyday objects. Here are a few of my favourite chalk-themed projects from around the Internet…

Smile and Wave cabinets

chalboard calendar and house numbers
chalkboard dresser
cheese board
chalkboard coasters

    • Thank you Ioanna! I’m yet to try this one out myself, and there are so many brilliant creations here it’s tricky to pick which to do first! Let me know if you give any a go!
