By combining squares of dark and lighter shades of homemade chalkboard paint, you can differentiate weekdays and weekends in a calendar that the whole family can use. Paint a slab of wood pallet or, heck, even that small-ish wall that doesn't have any other decor on it and measure out squares for meal prepping, vacation plans or chore reminders.
A cute idea for backyard parties, measure out the appropriate pieces of wood, add some cork to cover with chalkboard paint and prop up! You can write out what the resident bartender will be mixing up or a schedule of events. Learn how here!
An easy way to stay organized, swipe a patch of chalkboard paint onto your kitchen canisters so you can label them.
This could make for a sweet present, as well. Paint half to an entire mug in chalkboard paint and write a nice message.
Pick up some rinky-dink cork coasters and cover them in chalkboard paint. This way, you can assign them to the family and no one can claim they didn't know that was your coaster (we know you have a favorite).
Repurpose a worn-out coffee table or the like and give the top a coat of chalkboard paint. This, now, is the designated "gaming table," where all future board games, card games and bets are made. Record the scores on the tabletop as you go -- things just got interesting.
Go off! Maybe it's a playroom wall so the kids have a specific area to draw on the walls with permission, or maybe you have a muralist in the family who can beautify your living room.
Make seating charts a breeze!
With a chalkboard-painted cheese board, lay out your charcuterie spread like your normally would, but go the extra mile and label exactly what cheeses and meats your guests will be tasting.
