Chalkboards are a great trend right now in home decor and design. The bonus is that they are also functional. They add some nostalgia and charm to your home, events, and make great signs.
You can use them to organize your notes, calendar, or just write cute messages in chalk. Not all chalkboards are made the same, so you may need to DIY your own chalkboard project. I’m rounded up some of the most creative uses for do-it-yourselves chalkboards to help inspire you.
