Painting My Kitchen Wall with Chalkboard Paint

Love to doodle?
Have fun with sayings and quotes?
Like to change up design?
Then a chalkboard wall
might be a fun play place for you too!

Pin It!



I know -

Decisions  Decisions

to paint a wall black.

Oh, I've done that before.

So easy to change out if you don't like it.

Before...




After 2 coats of Rustoleum Chalkboard Paint...




After 3 days, condition the wall with chalk

by laying the chalk on it's side and

rubbing all over, then wiping off with a dry cloth.




Here it is partly conditioned.

I love the movement in the finish.




Then let the fun begin!

Dear Lillie has great Chalkboard Art.

So I took one of her designs and tweaked it a little


for my coffee corner in my kitchen.

This will be a fun play place for me -

changing on a whim.


Pin It!

Deb

Love it! I want to do the end of our cabinets that face the living room. Makes it nice you can switch out the art on it so easily. This gives me added incentive to move that task up on my list of things.
