What to do with a long, boring wall? Paint it with chalkboard paint! I've been wanting to do this for awhile for a few reasons:
1. The bottom of this wall gets very dinged up and dingy
from kicked off shoes since it's right by our back door.
2. I wanted to give our 14-month old something to do in
our kitchen, especially while I do laundry, which is
right around the corner from this wall.
3. My husband and I are trying to stick to a weekly
grocery budget and that means writing down what
4. The size of this wall just called out to be a blackboard!
The wall was very easy to paint--no primer needed. We just added the trim and corner pieces with liquid nail to give it that framed look. You can even buy tintable chalkboard paint if you want, say, a green or even purple board. So fun!
I'm a little crazy for chalkboards now (and I have some paint left). Check out more project ideas, including how to dress up an ordinary eraser for your new blackboard at Country Living (click on the picture for a direct link):
