chalkboard dresser re-style

Being a poor college student from halfway across the states, unsure of where I'll be in the next year, I find it difficult to invest in furniture. This dresser came from Leah's wonderful family (apparently if I seem desperate enough, furniture just falls right into my hands). They told my I could do whatever I wanted with it, basically, so I decided enough was enough with the brown drawers that clashed with the beige walls and also brown carpet. 

Leah and I have an abundance of chalkboard paint, and as I am a huge fan of neutral colors, a black chalkboard dresser seemed like the perfect solution. It just took an evening and about an hour to make sure it was all painted, and I love how it turned out! 

What else could you turn into an awesome chalkboard? (everything!)

This came out pretty awesome! Even when you erase the actual chalk and just leave the dresser back it looks pretty amazing!

i've been doing a lot of this: painting the glass panel of a cool frame --> get a chalkboard! for inspirational quotes or to-do lists. i've been giving them as house-warming gifts and people are loving it!

is it weird that i also painted my bike helmet with chalkboard paint the other day...?
