Are we sick to death of chalkboard paint yet???


I know, I know....chalkboard paint and chalkboards are everywhere lately. And just when I thought I was done with them....I found these cutie patootie flower shapes from Dollar Tree tucked away in my craft drawer. They were screaming to be made into chalkboards and I just couldn't resist....I had to do it!



I slapped on two coats of chalkboard paint, added an adorable ribbon hanger....and I think I might have the cutest chalkboards on the planet.




Wouldn't this be perfect on a shop door, posting their business hours?




I think I'll use this one on my bedroom door when I need some "quiet time". Although, I have a feeling it may not be too well recieved!



This one is going to hang to the side of my front door. We have some really sweet pre-teen girls in our neighborhood that like to come over and play with my little girls. They always seem to come at nap time though, and ring the doorbell 18 times or bang rather loudly. I'm hoping this will be a nice reminder for them.




This one is dedicated to my 9 and 11 year old boys who think they are way too old to still kiss their mom. Sorry boys........you're not getting off that easily. I expect kisses for the rest of my life. Deal with it!!

Sweet chalkboard projects!

Also, I really like how you use the shutters as decoration. May I ask what are the things you are using to support the shutter on the wall? I picked up some shutters from a church yard sale and I'd like to put them on the walls like yours.

Thanks!

I don't think we ever get tired of chalkboard projects...we all love them. I like your ideas...very usable. How about one by the toilet that reminds our little guys to put the lid down! Hahaha....no?
Ok...I like your ideas!
Blessings,

So sweet! I had to laugh b/c it seems like the UPS man always comes during naptime, or the guys who want to give free estimates, or sell you "great steaks" from the freezer in the back of their truck. Bleh.

OMIGOSH these are the cutest things ever! I am TOTALLY using that "please knock baby sleeping" idea to the side of my front door. We are welcoming our second child (baby Lyla) in a couple weeks and I will definitely be needing a gentle reminder for the neighbors! Thanks for the adorable idea!!

My first thought when I read the title, was nope, absolutely not! :)

Cara @ Whimsy Smitten said...

Those are so cute! Even though chalkboards are everywhere, I have yet to actually even crack open the chalkboard paint I have had forever, so thanks for the inspiration. I think those are the same dollar-tree plaques I made my "nest" wall signs out of that I posted for the dollar store challenge (different shapes, though).

Anyway, they made me want to make a chalkboard for each one of my kid's room to leave them little happy notes on. Thanks for sharing!
