I love being crafty. Although lately, I’ve had a hard time fitting it into my schedule. And I know with the upcoming arrival of our second baby, it will be even harder to find the time. So quick and easy projects are on my to do list! I’ve always wanted to mess with chalkboard paint, but since I’m short on time, I decided to look into instant chalkboard vinyl. It’s exactly what I needed for a quick crafty project!

Basically, Instant Chalkboard is a peel and stick chalkboard vinyl that allows you to place a chalkboard or chalkboard shape anywhere your little heart desires. You can remove it when you get tired of it, or just simply move it to another place! It’s easy to install and all you need is a credit card (or you can use the provided tool). It hardly takes any time at all and you can do a million different things with it!

Appliance Art graciously sent me several sheets of chalkboard vinyl to try! My first idea was to just put up a couple sheets of it on the wall in Grady’s room, but I quickly nixed that idea. He’s not quite 2, so I figured he wouldn’t quite know when to stop, and I might end up with chalk on more than just the vinyl. So instead, I made a little grocery list for the side of my fridge. I used one full rectangular sheet, peeled the backing and stuck it to the fridge. I smoothed it out with the card provided and……..boom! Instant Chalkboard!

Next, I decided to add some instant chalkboard vinyl to a clipboard I had on hand to help me keep track of my reviews and giveaways that need posted. I measured the clipboard and cut out a piece of vinyl the size I needed, peeled the backing, and smoothed it on. Another quick and easy project! Now I have a place to keep track of some blog stuff instead of wasting paper!

I have lots of sheets left to use, so I think I’ll check out Pinterest for some ideas!
