Chalkboard Wall Part One

I decided to go for it and paint a chalkboard wall in the kitchen. I think it will always be in the back of my mind if I don't give it a try.


I taped everything off with frog tape....


And started trimming around the edges...


I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous about the outcome....


Stay tuned for part two!

  4. Londen,

    I can't wait to see! This is something I have been thinking about too. My walls have a little texture and I am not sure how that will come out. GOOD LUCK!

    Best wishes,

    you'll love it. everyone always asks about the chalk clean-up. honestly, i don't think it's a big deal. have a swifter dust mop & presto it's off the floor. no biggie.

    can't wait to see it!

    happy november.

  7. Yay!!! I can't wait to see it. When we built our house, I totally tried to plan a wall in the kitchen where I could paint the whole thing with chalkboard paint. It turns out the wall I had in mind is more like a small strip next to the garage door, but maybe some day I'll have a whole big wall. I cannot wait to see your finished wall!!

  9. Londen,
    You are going to love it! Just remember to put at least 3 coats (light, not heavy) and it will hold up beautifully!! The worst part is seasoning the entire wall (wait at least 3/4 days for the paint to cure)...the dust is the worst at this point, but with a quick wipe of the baseboards and a swiffer it is soon gone and then very easy to keep up with. Good Luck!!
