"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up."

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

If You Give a Girl a Can of Chalkboard Paint…

Lately, I’ve been finding all kinds of great ideas that inspire me on Pinterest. You can find recipes, crafts, fashion advice and more. I love the DIY tutorials that make projects look so easy, even I could do them. So, I bought a can of this…


Chalkboard Paint. And decided to change this $14.99 poster frame (never mind the curious cat)…


into this…


a much needed message center in the kitchen. Now I can keep a weekly dinner menu for my family to see, keep the never ending grocery list and so on. But then, I practically had a whole can of paint left, so I decided to take this plain half bath…


and give it a funky graffiti wall…


The moral of the story is, be careful when you buy chalkboard paint, it’s addicting. And you’ll want to find new places to use it. Before you know it, it will be everywhere!


  1. so funny, I am just getting ready to do this! Can you write ok on the textured wall? And did you use actual chalk or chalkboard markers? Love what you did! How are all those cute boys of yours?:)

  2. I intended to sand my wall, and didn't, or else this project would have never happened, but a smooth surface would have been much better. The regular chalk still works over the texture, it's just not as neat as a real chalkboard. I haven't tried the chalkboard markers, do they erase easily? Please share how your project turns out. I'm sure it will be darling! Hugs and kisses to you all!
