Chalk is Awesome. Chalkboard Paint is genius.
Drawing with chalk is something pretty much all of us have memories of as kids. Every time you pick up a piece of chalk, it brings you back to those days spent doodling on the sidewalk and driveway.
Naturally we were thrilled to come across a new(ish) product taking the wedding reception world by storm – chalkboard paint!
For this photo booth idea, the couple painted a plywood backdrop with sky-blue chalk board paint, conditioning the surface by rubbing it with chalk and then erasing it, then drawing an eye catching design. To add a little color and pop, you can embellish with plywood trees and or signs for guests to write their messages on. What an awesome and colorful way to add life and pizazz to a DIY wedding photobooth on the cheap.
We were also pumped to find out chalk board paint is multi-surface, so it’ll adhere to pretty much any paintable material. Terra-cotta, wood, glass, the sky is the limit!
After a quick google search for chalkboard paint wedding ideas, we found out this nifty acrylic is good for a whole lot more too! Check out some of these other awesome diy wedding personalizations, brought to you by chalkboard paint:
