We had a very plain wall in our kitchen/school/office. After seeing some DIY chalkboard ideas back in August., I got my own idea for one right where that plain old wall is. At first my husband wasn’t too sure about painting a wall black, but being the good guy he is, he agreed to it.
This project has been the best $20 our family has ever spent (one can of chalkboard paint and 100 pieces of sidewalk chalk). We love our chalkboard wall. It has become one of our favorite things about our home. It’s even worth the dust mess!
Here’s some of the art we’ve put up on it…
Hooray, pictures! You KNOW I love your artwork! It’s great to see it all posted in one place. Such a great idea & such a creative family! Btw, they do make dustless chalk, you know. Lol! Although I read it still actually produces ‘dust’ – it’s just heavier particles that fall to the floor instead of floating in the air. May be what you’re using…either way sounds messy, but still looks like fun!
Debbie, Thanks for the comment. You’ll have to come over when it’s all cleaned off again and draw on it yourself.
I like the chalkboard wall. But mom wheres my birthday Mockingjay?
Oh honey I’m so sorry. The computer crashed last night while I was working on the blog, then it was so late I guess it just got overlooked. I forgot about the giant panda, too. I’ll update tonight, ok? And , thanks for viewing the blog, daughter.
Oh how absolutely wonderful! And to change it up with the seasons – and just enjoy. Love it!

I love this. I think I am going to do this downstairs. Yay!
We love it, but wish I had not put it on a wall with an electric outlet or by the floor vent. It gets a little messy when we clean it or do a lot of coloring. Thanks Marcy for visiting the blog. Please stop by again.
Love it! I might have to copy you, but I’m going to have to clear out some furniture in our house to create a chalkboard wall like this! 🙂
Thanks, we like it. Don’t put yours on a wall with an outlet or with a floor vent, though.
These are beautiful!!! Thanks so much for linking up at the blogroll! I look forward to keeping up with your family’s adventures. 🙂
Thank you for allowing me to share my blog. And thanks for visiting. betty jo

Wow, thanks. And, glad you came by for a visit!
I can imagine the dust IS pretty extreme, but that still looks like a really great idea!
You imagine correctly!
Brilliant idea! Wow. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you! However, “brilliant” doesn’t exactly describe our wall today. We’ve started a new mural and the dust mess has spread out of the kitchen/school area and into the hall.
