Have you wanted a unique way to showcase your creative flair in your McKinney TX new home? Try using chalkboard paint! It’s not just for schools anymore. Chalkboard paint can be applied to walls, furniture, accessories, etc. The possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination.
One application for chalkboard paint is in your kitchen. Apply the paint to a pantry door or cabinets to have a place to start a shopping list, display recipes, or weekly dinner plans. You could also apply the paint to the side of your kitchen island. If you have any old mirrors, refurbish them with chalkboard paint and write your favorite quote on it to display on the wall in your living room or dining room. You can also paint part of a wall with chalkboard paint and apply a vintage picture frame over the space to create a unique art piece.
Love to play games? Here’s a cool idea for your new home in McKinney TX. Apply chalkboard paint to a coffee table so you can easily keep score on game night! An old window frame that features multiple panes can be applied to a wall of chalkboard paint to create an instant calendar for your office. Or skip the frame altogether and create a calendar on your wall by mixing in varying shares of white chalkboard paint to create lighter squares for the different days of the week.
Don’t want to use the traditional black chalkboard? Liven things up by making your own colored paint. Combine one cup of flat paint with 2 tablespoons of unsanded grout and voila! You have your own homemade chalkboard paint.
