Show and Tell: Christmas Chalkboard

I’m probably fair to say I have an unhealthy obsession with blackboards. When I discovered chalkboard paint many years ago in B&Q I felt like all my Christmas’ had come at once. I spent hours making custom chalkboards for our wedding and they’ve been known to frequent our party photobooth many a time.

As I decked out our Dining Room for Christmas last weekend, I realised that a winter quote blackboard would make a lovely addition to the empty space in our fireplace.

I picked up the frame for 50p from a local car boot sale and used blackboard paint to cover a piece of MDF. Then I followed the steps below to create a very quick chalkboard.

If you’re after a little inspiration, there’s some great examples of chalkboard style prints and invitations on Etsy:Etsy ChalkboardImage credits: 1. Longfellowdesigns | 2 & 3 PLpapers | 4. Banter&Charm

I hope this has inspired you to add a chalkboard to your holiday decor. Have a great weekend x
