Hanging Board

This just may be one of the easiest options you have when it comes to using chalkboard paint to decorate. You can literally put it on anything you want to hang on your wall. Picture frames, dinner platters, and anything else you can think of. And the best part is you can change it any time you like.

Just clean off the paint and draw something new. It’s really that simple. And for those who can't draw, no problem. You can pick up a few stencils and work that way.

Wall Quotes
