I love the chalkboard craze and plan to keep enjoying these easy and fun diy's long after the fad has passed.
It took a long time before I finally took a leap of faith and bought my own chalk paint but, oh, am I ever glad I did! I have two chalkboards hanging in my living room and change the word with the season.
Here are a few pictures of the process. If you are timid and afraid of being creative making chalkboard prints will definitely aid you and "give you wings!" :)
After you have wiped your board clean, sharpened your chalk and drawn to your heart's content be sure to wipe away any extra smudges or smears.
Then hang your beautiful creation and drink a cup of coffee to it -- you're an artist! ;)
