Keen to liven up your back to school season with a DIY project? Using liquid chalk markers as an essential tool for your dorm room decor this year can help pump you up.

If you are tired of looking at your white walls covered with post-its, it may be time to hookup some chalkboard art instead. This is one DIY project that can help motivate you to achieve your goals and, at the same time, unleash your creativity.

Overcome Back to School Blues With Motivational Dorm Room Chalkboard Art

  • All you need is a sheet of chalkboard paper, or any construction paper and liquid chalk markers. The colors you choose should also fit your personality.
  • Search for quotes online that can fit your mood and even inspire you to do more. I have a few on hand, like “I will do what Queens do, I will reign.” This is a perfect quote to help me get through the days filled with extra-curricular activities, running between classes and tons of take-home work.
  • When you are ready to draw on your sheet, choose colors that feature the boldness of your quote. Using different liquid chalk marker tips and textures on the base, you can play around with the design and the letters. In my case, I used a black chalkboard paper that I can post on the wall. It has a strong adhesive but it is easy to remove if I want to reposition. Plus, the black base makes sure that the colors I chose stand out.
  • Lastly, put it up on your wall as a dorm room decor. Choose an area where you always frequent, like your desk or your bed.
