I love chalkboard walls and today I finally took the plunge by having one wall in my kitchen painted with chalkboard paint. At one time I was going to paint another larger wall with chalkboard paint and frame out my yearling calf head from Décor Steal with an old frame I have but after giving it a lot of thought went with my original plan to paint the smaller wall area going into my laundry room. I did cheat and have my painter come and paint it for me because of my frozen shoulder situation but I’m going to have so much fun decorating it when he’s done! Of course, the problem for me is I’m going to have to wait 3 days to do that as the directions say to not “cure” (rubbing it with chalk) it until for at least that long. But I will be putting my touch to that wall by this weekend….can’t wait!
Now here are a couple of photos I took this morning and as you can see there is nothing staged about it. Everything is a mess but I’m loving that wall!
The walls are painted in Latte and it’s a good neutral color that looks great with the chalkboard paint. You’ll have to be sure and come back and see it after I put up all my “pretties”!
I’m debating on having the french door painted white to match the trim. I don’t mind that it's black like the wall and I do have white trim (wish I didn’t have that 80’s chair rail but that’s another story). I’m going to see how I like the french door painted black for a while and if I just don’t like it my painter will come back and paint it out white for me. I’m going to be adding lots of white accents (frames, plates, etc) so I’m hoping that will off set the black door….what do you think?
Thank you for dropping by today!
