Chalk board paint is as popular as ever but I’ve never tried it. If you’re like me, you hate to see anything go to waste. It drives me crazy to see glass jars go into the recycling bin, especially those large pickle jars that I KNOW I could use. My issue has always been labeling though-I want labels that will stay put but are also editable. Now I’ve found a way to reuse the jars and stay organized at the same time!

DIY Chalkboard Paint Labels on Gallon Jars from Jo In The Kitchen
Those enormous pickle jars are a hot commodity in my house because they are perfect for storage. I love the idea of using chalk board spray paint to put permanent labels on these jars!
Chalkboard Paint Mason Jar Lids from Momtastic
I am in love with these chalk board painted mason jar tops. I can see myself going a little crazy with this one.
Chalkboard Painted Mugs from Pretty Handy Girl
She gives tips to make the mugs dishwasher safe – that’s a plus in my book! She used them for Christmas presents but they could be colored for any holiday or special occasion, and a chalk design added accordingly. I think children would enjoy decorating their mugs with chalk.
Using Chalk Paint To Paint Your Couch Or Wing Back Chair from The Purple Painted Lady
I have never heard/read about this before and I am intrigued. They have a lot of information on painting fabric, making it look nice, and having it last even with children and dogs. They seem to do it for remodeling or refinishing, not for the ability to use chalk on the painted furniture.

Chalkboard Flower Pots from Who Arted?
I’m sure you’ve already seen these, but I had to include them just in case. I like the way they painted the whole way around the pot and not just a square on the side. I also love the bright colors they used on the top and bottom of the pots.
Monogram Chalkboard Plates from The Poppygirl Diaries
These look classy because she got some very nice plates from an antique store. There are always plates at thrift stores and yard sales; so I think you could get some nice ones a bit cheaper then she did. This is the only tutorial that I’ve read the tip to cover the finished chalkboard paint completely with chalk then clean and use how you want. Interesting.
