I’m absolutely giddy over my latest chalkboard project. If I’m the last DIY-er on the planet to hear about this stuff, please don’t tell me, but I recently discovered Chalkboard Contact Paper, and I’m a new woman.

My first project was my garage entry door…

It was plain-jane before and needing a little something, so I gave the contact paper a try.

To get the perfect shape of my door panel, I simply taped the contact paper up with some painter’s tape, then used a crayon to rub on the guideline for cutting. Lucky for me, my panel was exactly 18″ wide, the same width as the contact paper, so I didn’t even have to cut the sides!

After cutting, I just started at the top and began to peel and stick. This stuff is so easy to use and can even be pulled up and re-stuck if a wrinkle appears.

Just peel it down a couple inches at a time, smoothing it carefully as you go.

My door panel was done it less than 10 minutes! Way easier than painting!

And now I’ve got the perfect spot for leaving messages or reminders or just another excuse for more chalkboard art.

It erases completely clean with a damp cloth, and leaves no residual chalk markings!
