Guest Post: Tanya Payzant - Chalkboard Paint

I've been admiring all the creative things you can do with chalkboard paint in your home. Compiled here are some great pictures I've been finding on the internet. Using chalkboard paint creatively is a super cost effective winter project to get your creative juices pumping!!

A unique way to keep track of all the pantry items you will need on your next grocery day.

Painting the top of a table with chalkboard paint.
What a neat idea for a child's bedroom, playroom,
or for a small table in your family room to play games on.
It would be perfect for a checker board, X's & O's, hangman etc.
In the summertime put the games table right out on your back deck!
I LOVE this idea. A chalkboard platter or plate.
This one looks like a piece of slate to me, but you could easily paint
an old wooden cutting board or platter for the same effect.
I've also seen small coasters painted with chalkboard paint.
You use chalk to print your name on the coaster.
That's great at a get-together, because you always know which drink is yours!

Love, love, love old doors and windows!

Isn't this calendar cool? You could do this in your back entry, or hallway.
Or make a much smaller version on a wall in your kitchen or computer room/family room.

This idea would literally take minutes to complete.
Using painters tape, just tape off a square and paint it with chalkboard paint.
Voila! Now label all your grains, pasta's, or in my case. . . chocolate chips!!!!

A menu board for your dining room. Watch yard sales for an old platter.

You can purchase chalkboard paint in many colors, and hardware stores can tint your chalkboard paint to your color of preference!

Label your herb window garden.

Celebrate every season, and holiday in "chalkboard style"!

Where possible, I listed the blog or website where these pictures may be found.

Have you ever used chalkboard paint on a project?
