Fall and Halloween Chalkboards

Love, love, love chalkboards !
I have loved using chalkboards in our Fall and Halloween decorating this year ! This thrifted frame hangs on the wall into our kitchen from the family room.. I am going to change it out for the seasons.
 
 This rectangle silver tray , from Good Will , got chalkboard paint in the center and is now sitting in a silver bucket with some branches from the yard.
 I got these two little wood pieces at Michaels , gave them a coat of chalkboard paint , and here they are .. I think they will be used at Christmas time too. I even used chalkboard paint on a real pumpkin , wrote the word BOO , and added crystal glitter to it !
 For our mantel I used these wood pieces ( from Joann Fabrics) painted them with chalkboard paint and used ribbon and a big stick from the yard to make this spooky banner.

 On top of the kitchen hutch , I have another silver tray , painted with chalkboard paint in the center .. You can see the before and after of our old oak hutch :)
Love the off white painted cabinet so much better ! My Halloween kitchen and hutch makeover can be seen here..

 I used this small silver tray , chalk painted in the center for my Picket Fence  Halloween Countdown sign .

 In the foyer I have a large vintage white chippy toolbox , that's filled with gourds, florals and sweater pumpkins.. This board came from Michaels and got a coat of chalkboard paint..
 Here is another silver tray on our kitchen counter.. I used chalk paint and just wrote the word Fall..simple but so cute ! You can see more of our Fall kitchen here..
 
Thanks as always for your nice comments and visits ! I appreciate all of them :) Have a great week!

The chalkboards look great, Priscilla. How nice that you can just erase the words and re-use them for other holidays, too :)

I am your newest follower and I love your posts. The chalkboards are terrific. I painted one of my pantry doors with chalkboard paint and I really like it. You have given me some more ideas - thanks so much.
Stop by and see my posts.
Have a wonderful week.
