The Charm Of Creative Chalkboards In The Home

A Look At Creative Chalkboards and the Charm They Can Bring To A Home

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!

This vibrant Red Metal Chalkboard with its fun zebra ribbon would look too cute in a teen girl’s room or fun home office. You can use regular old school chalk to write cute messages on your chalkboard or chalk markers for a cleaner, crisp look.

This vintage shutter was a church yard sale find. With some paint, hooks and TLC it now hangs in my kitchen. A vintage apron collection hangs from its hooks.

Every now and then I change the message to something funny or inspiring.

Upcycled Shutter Chalkboard

This Elegant Upcycled Chalkboard started out as a vintage frame that once housed an oil painting. The frame has great details. Placed in an entry way, chalkboards can give your guests a warm welcome with special notes or heartfelt greetings from you.

How fun is this chalkboard inspired Fresh Eggs Chicken sign? No Farmhouse inspired kitchen would be complete without a couple of chickens themed accents. Kitchens are excellent places for charming chalkboards. You can use them for grocery lists, chore lists or messages for loved ones.
