13 Chalkboard Paint Ideas That Allow You To Personalize, Well, Anything (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Our favorite projects involve taking something we've got lying around and making it our own. The easiest way to do that? Chalkboard paint. You literally just have to slap a couple coats of the stuff on pretty much anything from furniture to walls to an old TV set (yes, that's a thing), and you've elevated it from plain-Jane to a craft with limitless design potential. And if you don't like your chalk creations, no sweat. You can always erase and try again. And again. And again.

Scroll through thirteen of our favorite ways to use this crafty invention:
