I love chalkboard paint... whether it's on a whole wall (seen here), painted on a headboard (seen here), on a cabinet (seen here) or even framed and mounted.... I love it! I think the kitchen or mudroom is one of the best spots for a chalkboard, at least for me.... that's where I spend most of my time. I can write reminders to myself, 'to do' lists, menus, notes to family members, the kids schedule, etc.
Well, I didn't need much convincing to add another chalkboard area in my house..... I just needed to find the space. The cabinet wall on the side of the refrigerator was blank and looked like it could use some color (or a place to chalk). Then I remembered I had just the right sized board (cut from plywood) and it was already painted with chalkboard paint.... the chalkboard headboard from guest room in VA.
The main purpose of this chalkboard is for me to write our weekly menu, just like here. And the kids usually draw on the bottom portion.
When I walk in the house from the back door/mudroom area, the is my view of the chalkboard....
And when I walk in the front door and look to the right, there is my new chalkboard...
Whoa, y'all just got a sneak peak of my totally unfinished dining room.... that's on the list.... just waaaaay down at the bottom.
