I love a good chalkboard – especially an extra-large one!  Check out this chalkboard Angela at Unexpected Elegance made from a door.


I added chalkboard paint to our fridge, and now we have a weekly calendar as well as a small art/reminder gallery.  Check out the post for a tutorial and downloads.


While we’re in the kitchen, check out this other great (kitchen) chalkboard idea from Anderson and Grant.

  1. Were do you get the fonts to do your beautiful chalkboard art? Do you have a tutorial on how to down load the fonts to make them your own?

    1. Hi May! I search for free fonts and download them to my computer. I use a mac, so I can just add them to font book. I’m not sure how to add fonts to a pc…I’m guessing there’s a tutorial out there for it! Good luck!

  2. I added fonts to my PC and they are only printing 2 of the 5 letters I want?? I dont understand why? Can you help?
