    I don’t have one chalk board in the house b/c the dust and mess would drive me crazy. BUT I always see these cool projects and think, how cute and fun! I like the dear lillie sign, I might be able to handle that :)

      That’s exactly where I am. I’ve always thought it was the neatest thing, however I envision my child (whom I’m expecting in 8 weeks) sweet little hands rubbing chalk up and down the non-painted walls… Yikes!

    I’ve made several chalk boards using old frames, and the latest using a coffee table top, but don’t actually have any in my home. I don’t really like the messy look of chalk, but just may try those chalk inks.

      Ah…Chalk ink! You have saved me from not wanting to use chalk board paint! Genius! Now I may actually try it…have a great project in mind but like everyone else…hate the idea of not only chalk dust but OMG the feel/sound of chalk! Thank you…you don’t even know how your simple comment just changed my day :-)

    I think I’m going to take the plunge and make a chalkboard wall. I looove chalkboards! They remind me of having to be at school 30 minutes early because my mom worked there. I would get to sit in her classroom and draw on the chalkboard for as long as I wanted… so long as I cleaned it off afterward. :)

    I am SO in love with chalkboards…it took me a bit to get into the chalkboard groove (not usually one to jump in on a new trend) but I’m all there now! I use the chalk ink and love it. It doesn’t smear, no dust and is easily removed with a damp paper towel. I’ve got 4 or 5 of them placed around my home with sayings I change out from time to time. I’ve also put chalkboard stickers on pint sized mason jars and used the chalk ink to mark guest’s names…names stay on till I wash it off! Stickers are reusable (at least so far!).
