As some of you might know, we have been plugging away at what seems like the never ending kitchen project. And we haven’t even done any major construction projects, like tearing the ceiling down, or swapping out the lights above the sink and island, or changing the countertops. We have, however, been plugging away at phase 1 things, like new paint, plate rack wall, new backsplash, new shelves, and making a focal wall out of DIY chalkboard paint! Which is what I’m going to share with you today. And hopefully as we wrap up the shelves with new corbels this week, I can show you where we are at so far in the rest of the kitchen.
But once it was complete, it was everything I was hoping it would turn out to be. Perfectly subtle, but enough to grab your attention. It disguise’s the wall, that awkwardly popped out, and adds the perfect touch of character. I scribbled all over it quite quickly, more or less because I couldn’t wait to see what it looked like finished, but I’m so happy I didn’t resort to my black chalkboard paint left over from the dining room door. Will I be rushing into making some more of my own Chalkboard paint, probably not anytime soon. But am I glad I waited to see what it was like when it was all done, You better believe it!
