Oh, chalky paint. One of my greatest loves. My heart skips a beat when I get a new container of it or start a new chalky paint project. For real.
If you haven’t hopped on the chalk paint bandwagon yet, I’m thinking it could be because you think it’s really only used for furniture. And let’s be honest – painting a piece of furniture can be a little scary. But the good news is that because it is the most fabulous type of paint on earth, chalky paint can be used on virtually any surface. That means there are tons of chalk paint project ideas out there for those who do not want to paint furniture! And I searched high and low to gather up some of the best and most creative chalk paint project ideas that aren’t furniture to help inspire you to try the stuff out (or to use up your leftover paint)!
