Is anyone else a fan of chalkboards? Maybe it's my obsession with all things vintage and school-related, but chalkboards are one of my decorating staples! The chalky typography on a slate black background...love it! It has a historical and vintage feeling to it...no matter how new the chalkboard or chalk.
The foundation of this project? Craft paper!! Did you think craft paper could be made into a chalkboard? Well, I stepped out on a limb with this one. I didn't know if I would end up being teacher's pet or the class clown. I surely didn't want to end up in the corner with a dunce cap on my head, so I'm glad it turned out!
I wanted an inexpensive chalkboard solution to add to my studio makeover. While staring at my thrifted roll of craft paper one day, I thought, "hmmmmm." With the addition of a few simple products from DecoArt, Rockler, and Cutting Edge Stencils, this craft paper chalkboard is the result! I simply tacked it up onto the fabric covered bulletin board.
Hmmm...looks like I have some projects to get to! And the list has gotten longer since this photo was taken!
