Chalkboard Notebook for Back to School

Back to School time is here! My best friend sent her son off to Kindergarten, so exciting! I have a few years before I have to start thinking about my peanut heading to school but that hasn’t stopped me from stocking up on my favorite “school supplies.” Ehm… notebooks! As a blogger, I never have enough notebooks. You would think I would prefer electronic, but nope – I love a good ol’ notebook to write down all my ideas. So for your back to school and just all around super cute idea… I made this Chalkboard Notebook, and today I’m showing you how!

Chalkboard Notebook for Back to School

I pretty much love anything chalkboard. In fact, sometimes it’s almost like a game trying to decide what around my house I can turn into a chalkboard… it’s true! My latest was this composition notebook. Target had these bad boys on sale for back to school so I snagged one for only $.50.

With the notebook in hand, I grabbed my chalkboard paint and a little foam brush and got started.Chalkboard Notebook for Back to School

I the notebook with light coats of chalkboard paint allowing it to dry between coats. It took about three coats to complete.

After the paint is dry, I season my chalkboard. That was super easy! You just take the side of your chalk and rub it onto your chalkboard notebook, then wipe it off with a dry rag or paper towel. Chalkboard Notebook for Back to School

This seriously came out perfectly! Wouldn’t this chalkboard notebook be so cute to write homework reminders on? Or even class schedule? Super fun!

But, since I don’t have any back to school kiddos, I made this one for myself :)

I thought it would be fun to draw a little tribal print on mine, which I think came out pretty cute.

There are endless possibilities to a chalkboard notebook and it’s something outside your normal notebook! I hope you enjoy it!
