If you’re like me, you always over-buy paint. I mean, who wants to get halfway through a painting project and realize you don’t have enough paint and need to go back to the store? Not me! So, with this philosophy in mind, I often end up with extra paint. So after my last painting project–a chalkboard cabinet door–I had an immense amount of chalkboard paint to get rid of, thus I began a search for more chalkboard paint ideas. Check out the 7 cool ideas–I might actually try–below!
Chalkboard Wine Glass Labels
Looking for wine glass charms before a party is a pain in the butt so nix the idea completely by opting for chalkboard paint-dipped wine glasses. You’l never get your wine glass confused with someone else again.
As of now, I’m not sure what I’m would do with chalkboard painted bottles, but as I collect beautiful bottles and always want to upcycle old wine bottles, this could be a great solution.
Chalkboard Wrapping Paper
How fun! Personalize your gift wrapping paper with chalkboard paint. Supposedly, the chalkboard paint wrapping paper is reusable too.
Can’t have a real fireplace? No worries, just draw one instead! I particularly like this photo because of the small candles in front of the illustrated fireplace.
Chalkboard Herb Garden Labels
Classy and cute labeling is hard to find. Chalkboard paint provides the much-needed solution here.
Chalkboard Wall Calendar
Got a blank wall in your office? Then dress it up and simultaneously get a handle on planning with this chalkboard paint wall calendar. Write directly onto the chalkboard paint days or use post-its as an easy (and moveable) alternative.
Chalkboard Cheese Plate
I love this idea because it provides an easy solution to the “labeling the cheese plate dilemma.” Not sure what I’m talking about? Labeling a cheese plate on the fly with something classier than post-its–yup, it ain’t pretty–is hard. So this easy chalkboard cheese plate is the perfect, easy solution.
