Chalkboard Bandwagon

I’m jumping on the chalkboard bandwagon. 

My friends and family are going to think I’m a genius….my fellow bloggers will be like “great, you made a chalkboard like 50 million other bloggers”…..but do chalkboard posts ever get old??  That’s what I thought.

I bought this picture for $2.00 at the Salvation Army…

Not a horrible picture but what I really liked was the frame.  Simple but not too simple.  Just needed a fresh coat of paint.

I purchased some Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint…

Now I want to use Chalkboard paint on EVERYTHING!

Have you experimented with Chalkboard paint? 

Does your menu consist of the Cap’n?? I’m getting my fill in before they discontinue it.  I hope it’s an awful rumor but I’m eating up…just in case.

  1. Chalkboard paint projects never get old! Your menu looks great (and also what you're serving;)! I can't wait for the temperatures to warm up a bit so I can make my own.

  2. Looks good! It's a great frame. I don't have much luck with frames in the area, they always look chintzy. Where's your Goodwill of choice?

    (PS - Do you have chalkboard pens yet? They are awesome. Write like a paint pen but remove like chalk.)

  3. I'm just really excited to see that "herb" is growing hair!

  4. Kim- Salvation Army...but don't steal my stuff. :P

    Mom- What can I say...I inherited your green thumb. :)

  5. OMG love!!!
    i never have any luck at the Salvation Army near me :( not a single frame or piece of furniture, only clothes!

  6. Def not tired of the chalkboard posts at all! What I LOVE about them is seeing the unique pieces that are made into chalkboards. Like here... I LOVE your frame- it's chunky and substantial, but simple and beautiful. LOVE IT!!! PS- I love Cap'n Crunch too!

  7. I just stumbled across your blog. Thanks for posting this. I really want to try it. This may be a dumb question, but I have never used or even heard of chalkboard paint. Did you put it on the glass or on the actual canvas? What kind of surface do/can you use it on.

  8. @Stephanie- I used the chalkboard paint on the actual print. This frame didn't have any glass. I think any wood surface would work just fine!

  9. Very good idea! And I have to say I love the giant spoon, knife and fork as well! Thanks for sharing!

  10. Very cute and fresh. I love chalkboard too, one can never have enough chalkboard items:)

  11. Cap'N Crunch is my favorite *kid cereal!
    ... cute chalk board, I love mine-- and I love writing cutesy sayings on it too.
