@Hannah great idea!

You could use the chalkboard paint to turn the cover of a boring note pad/book into something you can draw on when bored.

This is such a fun roundup! I know I'm going to spend half the day clicking around to all those great links. (You'll tell my husband why it's scrambled eggs for dinner, right?) Thanks. Really.

You can make the chalk more permanent one of two ways:
1) get liquid chalk. This comes in markers and different sizes. Finds the one that works for you.
2) wet the chalk board first with a damp cloth. This will effectively fix the chalk to the board. You will be able to remove it with a wet cloth.

I use chalk board contact papers to cover the fronts of my storage boxes then use a 5mm liquid chalk pen to label them.

Great ideas, but don't forget chalk rubs off easily and is messy.  Anyone have a suggestion for setting it in place?
