Nostalgic, creative, and adorable: chalkboards are perfect in any space. And with the advent of chalkboard paint and chalkboard spray paint, the possibilities for using them are endless. On dresser drawers, so you can label what’s inside? Check. On the stem of wine glasses so you no longer accidentally spend an entire evening sipping another person’s drink? Check. From these ideas and more, here are five easy chalkboard projects to do over the weekend.
Create a Chalkboard With Key Hooks
From handwritten messages to the family, inspirational quotes for yourself, or even a calendar, the organizational possibilities are endless with this idea. Purchase a small chalkboard, install key hooks on the bottom, and hang by the door. Don’t know where to find a small chalkboard? Find a piece of plywood, paint it with chalkboard paint, and voila!
Paint Your Dresser
Painting your dresser is another great organizational option, whether you paint the entire dresser or only the outside of the drawers. Not only can you draw fun designs that match your room’s theme, but you can label what’s in your drawers so that there’s no more guessing.
Paint Your Fridge
Yes, you read the header right. Paint your entire refrigerator with chalkboard paint, and turn the most important element of your kitchen, basement, garage, or pool house into a fun message center and art hub! This is an especially good idea if your refrigerator isn’t beautiful, but you can’t afford to replace it.
Personalized Wine Glasses
No more inadvertently sharing your wine glass with this easy chalkboard project to do over the weekend. Dip the stems of your wine glasses into chalkboard paint and let it dry. When your guests arrive, pass around a stick of chalk (or give out some chalk and other items in a fun goodie bag), and have them write their names on their glass.
Meal Planning Board
Sometimes, the thought of figuring out what to eat can catapult you into a fresh pool of stress. Avoid this by planning out your meals ahead of time and writing them on an adorable chalkboard! Whether you use a piece of chalkboard-painted plywood surrounded by a frame or a canvas, this is an excellent idea for single folks as well as families.
