  1. Oh, my goodness! I love all the inspiration; WOW! I have a chalkboard door in my kitchen, we love it; even my 13 year old daughter loves it!


  2. Oh gosh, this is fantastic! So many too cool ideas (and I see my kitchen here too, YAY!) I just love this round up of chalky inspiration!

  3. Holy cow…all such great ideas!

  4. Wow, what a great bunch of Ideas, I have a can of chalkboard paint in our basement that was left by the previous owners… cant wait to give it a shot!!!!

  5. Very cool inspiration…wow so many different uses of chalk board paint..I love it!

  6. Wow! What an awesome collection of chalkboard inspiration! Love these! Thanks for sharing!

  7. This made me “not like” chalk paint details a little less… I wouldn’t do it in my house still. But I might appreciate it from now on…
    good post.

  8. Wow, such great ideas! Never knew the chalkboard paint could be so versatile! I like the refrigerator doors the best. I think it’s the most useful and looks the best. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  9. WOW so much inspiration and I’m glad it’s still going strong because I am late, late, late to the party! I have yet to do a chalkboard project! I did just pick up some self adhesive chalkboard paper that I’m anxious to play with!

  10. I painted the inside of my front door with chalkboard paint and I love it!
    A fun & inspirational post, Stephanie Lynn!

  11. This is how I do our family calendar in our kitchen. I LOVE it. Laid out the calendar grid with a silver sharpie and change it monthly. It works great for us and my kids get the bottom half of the wall to play on 🙂

  12. Wow so many great uses for chalkboard. Those are great inspiration pics thanks for sharing them.

  13. Goodness you found lots of ideas! I really like the look of the chalkboard as the back splash and on the whole wall. That is AWESOME!

  14. Love it. We painted our refrigerator with chalkboard paint too. And changed the handles out.

  15. I just can’t get past the dust that comes with chalkboards, so I’m not sure I’m jumping on this bandwagon. Although my son wants a stripe of black paint in his room so I may cave in and make that chalkboard. He would love it and maybe I could make him be in charge of vacuuming his room so I wouldn’t have to deal with the dust 🙂

  16. I like this idea AND my VERY,VERY Favorite is the 4th and 5th down. I LOVE it with the black and white kitchen! “So Much Fun”!
    Thank you for sharing with us.

  17. We have a whole wall that is chalkboard, magnetic and white board. My daughter loves it. Check it out on my blog.

  18. lovely ! I prefer the ones on the walls !
    I also have bought some stuff here and i think it can be part of your collection :

  19. Stephanie Lynn,
    First time here, loving your blog. I am your newest follower. I would love to be entered into the drawing. Thanks so much for hosting. I have linked to your party. I am always creating in my home, but not sure that is a guideline. I hope it is okay to link up. Feel free to take me off, if not. Thanks again for hosting the giveaway!

  20. How funny! I just posted about my FREE project chalkboard! LOVE all your inspiring pics! Here is my project:

  21. featured this on my blog today!

  22. I am amazed by how many people who have covered their fridges in chalkboard paint. I’m not sure I would go there. I don’t like the sensory feel of it. I did add it to my kitchen, though. We have some ridiculous soffits that can’t be done away with and I wanted to put something there that would make them look more purposeful. I painted them with chalk board paint and am writing different “formulas” on them. My kitchen has a subtle mad scientist theme so this fits right in. I will have to post some pictures of this. The chocolate chip cookie formula turned out much cooler than I had ever dreamed.

  23. Wow!! What great inspiration!! Thanks for such an awesome post!

  24. Thank you so much for compiling all of these ideas.
