Chalkboard Crazy! 35 DIY Chalkboard Projects You'll Love.

Chalkboard paint is so trendy right now - and for good reason: because it is awesome! Clearly I've been bitten by the chalkboard paint bug. Especially since being introduced to my favorite chalkboard paint ever from Lullaby Paints (you can get it here). It is VOC free and applies more smoothly than competing chalkboard paints I've tried. Did I mention that it is VOC free? (that's a big deal!)

In homage to my love of chalkboard, I am bringing you 35 fabulous DIY chalkboard paint projects from some of your favorite bloggers. Check them out!
