Chalkboard Evolution


Having chalkboards in my home brings with it the ability to change things up without buying new decor.  Of course, the actual chalkboard design evolves a bit over time.
When I first hung the old screen door, with a freshly painted chalboard panel, I stood back with chalk in hand....and....nuthin.  I had no idea what to write or what to draw.
The first few attempts were a bit sketchy. (except for the addition from my budding artist niece)
My boys drew "the big buck" at deer season, so I decided to have some fun with him for Christmas.
Then there was also the time I decided to share...
...the best chocolate cake recipe, EVER.
Go ahead and give it a try!
Then over time, the chalkboard design evolved a bit more with web inspiration.
And here my chalkboard is right now.  I wonder what will be the next design.
Any suggestions?
Here are a few other chalkboards in my home.
This is paint mixed with unsanded grout. Pick a color, any color, and you can make some too!
1 cup paint to 2 tablespoons white unsanded grout
Chalkboard paint can be used on a multitude of surfaces.  Now go chalkboard something!
