A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Late night thinking turns out great...

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Late night thinking turns out great...

The other night I was thinking about the contact paper chalkboard....Yep, they have it. I couldn't find it anywhere. But, a few months ago I bought this, thinking I would use it sometime.

Then, I had this stuff...you know, contact paper....

So, I put the two together. Two coats. Done.

And then I found this gorgeous picture and proceeded to spray paint right over it....

And this is the end result:

Right on the kitchen wall. The boys came up with a list of things they want to do this summer and we're checking them off as we go. So fun!

I had some left over chalk board, and still have some that I'm deciding what to do with....but so far, I've done these:

I'm in love. So easy. So cheap. So using what I had around the house. LOVE IT.

I've been toying with the idea of a chalkboard in the kitchen, but the only place would be on the main wall behind our table. I'm just not sure how it would be as the center artwork.. any thoughts?

Love the idea! I have used the paint for clipboards for my classroom but I never thought of using it on contact paper! Great idea!

Natalie - I am all for chalkboards as the center piece of a room. Next to this wall where this one is, we have a ginormous chalkboard that takes up the entire wall....it's not pretty - the boys use it every day...but I love it! I'm going to do a post on chalkboards...cuz their cool.

Wow! I love chalkboard paint and I think contact paper is going to be new new friend. Do you just buy it at a craft store?

love the chalkboard and the jars. I've been looking for a frame to do just that but haven't found it yet. When I do, I'll be sure to include it on my blog. :)
