I've always loved Chalkboards...and once I found out that there was chalkboard paint I had to find a place in my house to put it!!!
I figured it out. I have this small wood panel in my kitchen that is part of the kitchen cabinets and hides the side of the refrigerator. I thought it would be the perfect place. So I went for it. I taped off the edges from floor to ceiling and applied the paint per the directions on the paint.
I also decided to screw in a decorative door knob and tie a ribbon on to hang a piece a chalk, that way it's always there for me when I need to jot down an idea, dinner menu thoughts, an item to pick up at the grocery store, or a love note to my husband.
I also think that it will be great when my daughter gets older. I can be in the kitchen working on dinner while she draws a masterpiece on the chalkboard wall. She will be entertained and in my sight at all times! Perfect!
If you have the perfect place in your home for messages and notes - try some chalkboard paint from your local hardware store.
PS: The paint comes in colors now too not just black!
