Chalkboards

Blackboards (or chalkboards)...

           ...come in all shapes and sizes....


We have a matching pair of large chalkboards that have been really popular - one came back complete with the menu, and I haven't had the heart to clean it yet - I suppose I'll have to one day, they are both booked out on & off all summer!



You can see blackboards - or at least blackboard paint in use all over the place at events nowadays, from little panels on jam jars and wine bottles, to full walls and backdrops...

How easy is it to draw on a chalkboard?


Does it depend on how artistic you are? 
I craft a lot with fabric, but can't draw a straight line on a blackboard! I have found many sites that have lots of tips and guidance for creating a work of art - this is one of my more recent finds..


or just look for a font to create a fabulous style online...


Wherever you Google and whatever you search for, you will find lots of inspiring images, hints and tips for chalkboards - they are a fantastic resource that can be used for everything from basic signs or table numbers - if you need any more inspiration, take a peek at our Pinterest pages...
