Chalkboard Art


I have been searching blogs for examples of DIY projects using chalkboard paint. Here is one from design*sponge that is a work of art.

Simply stunning.

Did you ever think you would see this on a chalkboard? It beats stick figures!

You know, if I got this artistic on a chalkboard, I would want to preserve it with a matte finish spray varnish. I would preserve just the design and leave the blank space free to write messages.

I have discovered that visiting blogs and websites is a great way to search out design ideas. On sites that will let you search, type in something that interests you. In my case, I want to find examples of chalkboard paint DIY projects. So I search for "chalkboard paint". I have found tons and will share my favorites in the next couple days.

Isn't that beautiful!
You're right...if I spent all that time on that lovely drawing, I wouldn't want it to be easily erased.
