When you use chalk markers, whatever you do isn’t permanent. It’s possible to erase, change, and update anything. 

Do you love getting your home organized? Are you purchasing containers for all your different kitchen staples and accidentally using them in the laundry room? If so, why not use your chalk markers to make labels for these containers to help keep things in their proper place. 

You can even draw pictures if you’re feeling creative

Tile Art

Do you have plain colored tiles in your home? If so, these are the ideal canvas for your chalk markers. Again, your imagination is your only limit

Before you start a new project, it may be helpful to sketch out what you want to draw. After that, you will have a guide for what you want to create. 

If you plan to use chalk markers for decorating tiles, clean the surface you are decorating well first. You can use hot, soapy water or even alcohol to remove any oil, grease, or dirt on the tiles. Also, make sure you dry the surface well before getting started.
