Chalkboard Invitations, Place Cards, Table Numbers, Party & Home Decor, and  More

It doesn’t take more than a minute or two perusing Pinterest to know that vintage is in.  Brides have especially been loving our vintage tin tile  outdoor wedding photography backdrops and magnetic seating charts & escort card boards.  Today we want to make sure every one is aware of the newest trend in vintage — chalkboard everything.  At first we thought it it was our personal obsession after discovering a ceiling tile chalkboard  but after my daughter called and said she painted a chalkboard wall and created 2 chalkboard side tables in her summer apartment rental, I knew I was on to something.  Izzy is always a beat or two ahead of burgeoning trends.  And then today, I opened my email and there waiting for me was a note from Tiny Prints with the subject  “Chalk it up to Birthdays”” featuring their latest fashion forward invitations.

So today we have chosen to  showcase this chic new chalkboard trend in invitations and suggest coordinating your place cards / escort cards, table numbers, party & home decor.  Once we began our quest, we were amazed at how much chalkboard “stuff” is readily available online. Plus, as Izzy could tell you, you can easily transform just about anything into a chalkboard decor yourself using a can of chalkboard paint or chalkboard peel & stick papers.

Just a note of caution – if you DIY, make sure you check the color on the container.  Turns out chalkboard paint comes in both black and green.  I wanted black but mistakenly bought green paint.  I ended up trying the green, not liking it, and repainting my ceiling tile chalkboards with the black  chalkboard spray paint.

DIY: Decorative Tin Ceiling Tiles + Chalkboard Paint

Use decorative metal tiles and chalkboard paint to create your own unique and chic chalkboard table numbers, place cards, party favors, and home decor!

A ceiling tile chalkboard is super simple to make yourself — all you need to do is choose a tile with a large flat center and paint the center with chalkboard paint.  Although the picture shows the tile framed in black, personally, I think the frame detracts from the tile.  I would just hang the tile directly on the wall with  removable Picture-Hanging Strips or nail them into the wall with cone head nails.

All tin tiles are 24″ x 24″.  Therefor you can make 4 – 12″ x 12″ chalkboard table numbers and/ or signs with 12 – 6″ x 6″ chalkboard place cards / escort cards.  Add a magnet to the back of the place cards to display them on a tin magnet board and create a chalkboard magnet party favor!

Here’s how mine turned out (when the rest of the kitchen is finished I will add a photo of the entire nook).  I use them both as chalkboards and as magnet boards.
