Chalkboards in any color! This post by Carissa from Carissa Miss shows us how to make our own chalkboards using Country Chic Paint

This is one of the easiest transformations. I’ve been sitting on the idea for a while but finally made it happen. Isn’t that the way it goes? The easiest, quickest things get pushed off to the side. I wanted a fun art table for my daughter. One I didn’t mind if she colored or painted on. I bought an Ikea LACK table for this purpose last year but it just stayed white. If I did it over, I’d do a black table so the chalkboard just blends in. I didn’t have to use black because ANY Country Chic paint can be used as chalkboard paint! However, I love the look of the black when the kids color on it.

Before you add your wax, sealing the paint, the surface is perfect for drawing with chalk.

I’m Carissa from Carissa Miss. I love all things DIY, especially trying to make my own versions of pricey designer items. Like my DIY farmhouse table, this Ikea RAST hack, or these vertical stripe curtains. I love working with e-design clients to transform a space from blah to wow! Here’s a gallery of some of the inspiration boards I’ve created.
