In case you haven’t noticed chalkboards are all the rage right now. So is chalkboard paint! If you walk into any home decorating store these days you are bound to find an assortment of chalkboard inspired home accents. It took me a while to jump on the chalkboard bandwagon but I am so glad I finally did! Take a look on Pinterest and you will find a treasure trove creative chalkboards to purchase or ideas to make your own. You can even find creative ways to write on your chalkboards too!

Although we don’t see many of them in school rooms these days, chalkboards have made it into our homes all across the country. We can get a little creative with them as well.

I bought this vintage metal serving tray at one of my favorite haunts a while ago. I painted it a petal pink and used chalkboard paint in the center. I love how it looks in my cottage style kitchen centered above a shelf full of vintage goodies. As an added bonus it’s magnetic and a few vintage recipe cards add to its charm!
