Chalkboard Paint DIY Ideas

3 Totally Unexpected Chalkboard Paint DIYs

We know, we know... the novelty of chalkboard paint as a cool DIY material is probably something you're already schooled in, but that doesn't mean you're using it to your advantage. As much as we get a kick out of the seemingly endless options of household items that can be painted, there comes a point where chalkboard paint loses its amazing functionality (ahem: chalkboard globes). Behold: three surprising chalkboard paint ideas that will have you hitting up your local hardware store this week!

Narrow Supporting Walls
You know the type – those awkwardly dimensional walls that can only handle bite-size art. Instead of trying to find something small enough to accessorize the narrow surface, make the entire wall its own piece of floating art. The result looks much more fluid and tricks the eye into thinking that the ceilings are higher.

Dull Dining Chairs
Who needs place cards when you can have place chairs? While you might be hesitant to take a paintbrush to new chairs, chalkboard paint will give mis-matched flea market finds a more cohesive look and dress up older, more lackluster chairs.

Planters
Let's be honest, those paper stakes that stick out as identifiers are a bit of an eye sore. Perfect for labeling anything from seedlings to thriving herb plants, these planters take the guess work out of gardening.
