Chalk board

I love chalkboard!  Perhaps a bit too much as evidenced by all the times I have {over} used chalkboard in my house. 

A cute little chalkboard label on the to-do bucket by my desk. (galvanized bucket from Joann, chalkboard vinyl from Home Goods, die cut with Stampin' Up die)

Another label on the cookie cutter jar.

This is just inside the door to our garage.  Sorry for the poor picture - it's the teeniest hallway ever and impossible to find a good angle.  We keep all our schedules here.  My littlest guy uses the wall for artwork too. 

This is my favorite use of chalkboard in our house- painting the bifold doors that lead to my husband's office.  When we bought the house that room was technically a formal dining room, but we thought it better used as office space. 

It's the one room in our house my husband wanted total control of.  I'm not allowed to touch it unless he approves it.  Needless to say his modern, asian taste in decor doesn't go with the shabby, worn and warm look I tend to lean towards.  These doors keep it the room closed and protect our marriage!   :)  Just kidding it's not quite like that, but the doors work to keep the room {out of sight, out of mind!} I also like to hang my children's artwork on the doors. 

How do you feel about chalkboard? 

I'm liking up to these fun parties:

  1. I love the idea of the chalk board doors! I wish mine would work that way! They are like six-panel door type (except really skinny and bi-fold) so there wouldn't be much room. If I get to replace them this would be an awesome idea!

    I have a whole stack of the tin planter boxes that would work great for organizing mail and stuff!

    Love your blog!

  2. HAHA - I am a bit obsessed with chalkboard paint right now. I think I am actually going to do another project with it today. Glad to see I'm not the only one who loves it!!

  3. Genius! I’ve always wanted a chalkboard in the kitchen, but don’t have a place to put it. Converting that part of the door to a chalkboard certainly saves space, not to mention it’s very visible so I can easily be reminded of whatever I’ve written in it. Cheers!
