If you’re anything like me, you probably continue to think that the chalkboard trend will take its dying breath any day now. But wait! Anonymous Pinterest user has just posted the most incredible use of chalkboard paint you have ever seen … and the whole thing starts again. I’ve decided to stop fighting this ever-growing trend and, instead, embrace it in all its DIY-versatile goodness.
The coolest chalkboard craft I’ve come across recently? These awesome planters! It’s such an easy way to update a plain terra cotta pot, and I just love the way they look with their names on display (and in French no less!). But if this style seems a little too School Days for you, jazz them up with a cool tribal or geometric pattern. The options are endless!
My second favorite use of chalkboard paint is this beautiful refrigerator! My fridge has got to be over a decade old, but it works. So, while I could never throw something out that doesn’t actually have any problems (other than the fact that it’s a bit of an eyesore), I would love to give it the chalkboard treatment. I might even just leave it black, because I’m crazy for that cool matte look.
And of course, I LOVE this chalkboard headboard. It’s a great way to send yourself a message, not boring to-dos but fun notes like this “Wake up on the bright side!” I believe I would if I were sleeping here.
What do you think? Are you over chalkboard paint and its many uses? Or are you itching to give one of these clever ideas a try? Let us know in the comments below!
