I spent my Saturday night playing around with Chalkboard paint and creating my front door bling. Hey, I had fun!
I've been wanting to use chalkboard paint for awhile but held off because I wasn't sure what wall was best to paint. There were several factors that led to my final decision, such as the wall's visibility, usage, and size...matters.
This is a small wall which is good because when I'm over the chalkboard paint and want something new, painting over it will be a breeze. Also, there are always people congregating in the kitchen and we always play board games at the dinette table so this is perfect for taking score and to keep guests busy. Finally, I hate to scramble for a pen and paper when I want to take note of something - so this wall proved to be perfecto!
Here it was before. You can see more pictures of our kitchen, here.
And after just two thick coats of this paint, priced around $11.00, and some chalk I picked up for a $1.00...
The possibilities are endless. I'm so happy with how it turned out. I'll use this wall to create a fun sign for my sister's baby shower (being held at my house), and to also welcome my family coming to visit for the holidays, to take score during our next Taboo gathering, to jot down notes and SO MUCH MORE!!!
|There's Roxy Gurrrls chillin' against the wall. She almost always finds a way into my pictures :)|
I purchased a pint of the chalkboard paint and after I painted two thick coats there was still about 2/3 left. I used the left over paint on something else too - but I'll save those pictures for another night.
Thanks for reading. Have a good night!
