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!
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.
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.
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!
