write it on a chalkboard!

I have been seeing chalkboards everywhere lately... and am absolutely loving the innovative ways they are popping up!! Long gone are the days of musty old green chalkboards lining the walls in schoolhouses... now chalkboards are artistic, whimsical, fun and so useful as well! Here are some of my favorite ways of using this traditional idea in new ways...
Etsy is full of super cute wall decals that are also chalkboards!! SO CUTE... I love the idea of sticking the decals on the walls- they are low-key, but still give the same effect as if you nailed up a chalkboard to your wall! :) This one can be found right here!
Have you noticed the mini chalkboard cups, mugs, wine glasses, jars, napkin rings, etc, etc, etc?? Andrew convinced us that he needed a glass with a small chalkboard on it from Pier One a few days ago. Such a good idea for parties or hostess gifts, as well as entertaining small children haha! :)

And one of my favorite ideas... use a little bit of chalkboard paint to use anywhere in your house! I love the bit of chalkboard on the door in this super cute room. But really, the possibilities are endless with this paint! A few years back, my mom painted her whole kitchen nook in chalkboard paint and it was amazing!! :)
Have any favorites lately with chalkboards?? Have you used them anywhere in your own house?! Hope you are all enjoying your week! xo!
And PS.
We made it through the fair last night with no broken legs!!! Woooo! Pictures will be up soon! :)

cuuuuuute ideas!

I'm all about chalkboard paint/chalkboards anyway I can get them!

On my way home from dropping my daughter off at summer school today, I was thinking of where I could put corkboard and chalkboard paint in a crative spot...

You've inspired me to check out Etsy and see what I can come up with!

I love blackboard paint. My hubby and I brought the wine glasses on our honeymoon. We kept writing all kinds of fun little messages on them :)

Wow, those are really cute! I hate the feeling of chalk on my hands, but those Etsy ones are so adorable I might be persuaded to change my mind! :)
