While I was working on my last post, I realized how many different ways I have used chalkboard paint…sooo I thought you might like to see them all in one place! And of course you know that most of them will involve frenchiness!

French Laundry Basket One of my favorites and perhaps the easiest is this one…a little oval chalkboard tag added to my frenchy grey willow laundry basket. You will find a tutorial including instructions for painting the basket here.

Frenchy Rooster Chalkboard The only hard thing about my frenchy rooster chalkboard was finding the shape! However, I later found them at Michaels for only 79 cents! Love it hanging on the guest room door! :-)

053_thumb[2] I made this little guy completely from scratch! Gotta love the burlap frame! See a complete tutorial here. That's my sheet music wreath in the background. A tutorial for it can be found here.

merci tag_thumb[6] OK…so I am cheating here! I actually found these tiny chalkboards at Jo-Ann for only $1.50 for three! Woo hoo!  Click here to see the changes I made to make it more rustic. Love these little guys!

poire_thumb[6] In fact, they are still popping up all over my house…with labels in French, of course!

IMG_1766_thumb[5] Here’s my first project with chalkboard paint…converting this bunny chef recipe card holder to a little chalkboard! See how to do it here. There’s a fun tutorial for a frenchy grain sack pillow in the same post!

041_thumb[13]I still love this one…chalkboard wine glasses! What a fun way to claim your own glass! There’s a recipe for a white wine Kir and links to some fun French amuse-bouche…little tidbits to accompany your drinks…on the same post!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Thanksgiving PlacecardsYou can use chalkboards at holiday time, too! Here are some fun ideas for Thanksgiving place cards…although the little tags could be used at any time!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Valentine Chalkboard Greeting2 And here’s my most recent project using chalkboard paint…a tiny thrift store tray converted into a little plaque bearing seasonal greetings! You can see more here. Not only am I using it for Valentine’s Day…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Tiny Christmas Tree Greeting …but I also used it at Christmas! I am going to have fun with this one! I see a Saint Paddy’s Day vignette in my future!
