I'm a firm believer in using what you have on hand to create what you really want. It's not always the easiest way to go but it's always the cheapest.
About a million years ago, we had some project that left us with a piece of particle board (seen here) and I wanted to have a chalk board for my family. I had chalk board paint but that would look really bad on this type of wood, you couldn't write on it. But I did have was a piece of chalk cloth and a staple gun.
Here is the chalk cloth chalkboard tutorial!!
Feel free to steal my new saying!! They are words to live by, don't you think?

Yet another great use for chalk cloth!! Follow the tutorial from the Sparkle blog to create you own hanging chalkboard. All you need is chalk cloth and the following supplies wooden dowels (2), wood stain, eye and hook screws (2), chain, utility knife and a heavy-duty stapler and you've got yourself a great gift for so many people on your holiday list!!

I haven't seen a Target that I didn't like (a lot), so when my friend Kerri spotted this one I fell head over heels in love! Check out the chalk cloth on the table!! Cuteness. You know we love to get our party on with chalk cloth.
Chalk cloth is pretty stiff stuff so it doesn't drape like a normal tablecloth so I used a few yards of the black stuff to make a custom table topper. See how to make one here and then check my Thanksgiving tablescape on Apartment Therapy!
Over in the Modern June shop we have many chalk cloth runners to choose from, as well as, chalk cloth chargers/placemats! These are a lot of fun at parties and game nights! They even make homework fun -- almost! Check them out in this months Country Living Magazine too!
