Chalkboard effect (Photoshop tutorial)

Yesterday I was with Mr. Hunter in Starbucks and we were looking at one of their signs and talking about how you can turn a beautiful wooden frame into a chalkboard using blackboard paint (this is the best deal I found on Amazon). We made a mind note to try this once we have our house. It would look great as a place to write notes and shopping lists in the kitchen - at least, in the dream kitchen I have in my head.

Courtney guides you through it with a series of print-screens, easy peasy!


An interesting thing though is how often we see chalkboard effects on graphic design and everywhere online. I don't know if everyone feels the same way about it, but to me it brings back nice childhood memories and I guess that's why I like it so much. Luckily, with this simple tutorial (with a couple of downloadables) by Sweet C's Designs, anyone can recreate that look using Photoshop! And by using Courtney's textured overlay, you can apply it to pretty much any font you want!
