Tons of ideas for using chalkboard paint

Tons of ideas for using chalkboard paint

This weekend, I cracked open my pint of chalkboard paint that seems to have no end.

I bought it to make an actual chalkboard for my sister for Christmas a few years ago, and then used it to make those chalkboard cookie sheets that have proven versatile and fun. I still have so much left, though.

This time, it was for a little project for the newsroom that you'll see later this week (chalkboard paint takes three days to cure). While I had it open though, I was unsuccessfully trying to think of other things to chalkboard.

I asked my friends on Twitter and they suggested:

True confession - I lost interest by the time I saw all these wonderful suggestions, but I thought they were great.

Have you ever used chalkboard paint? Is there something you'd like to try it on? Other than the pesky three-day curing time, it's easy and fun to use.
