Hi guys! I’m continuing to s-l-o-w-l-y make some headway on sprucing up our tiny kitchen eat-in area. The latest baby step is the addition of a chalkboard over our upholstered bench seat:
My original plan was to hang a series of six framed prints above it but because of a low wall vent, I realized that standard sized frames wouldn’t work and that I’d have to go with custom framing to pull it off. Six custom framed prints = too much money so when I saw this inexpensive framed chalkboard (a HomeGoods find!) and found that it was the perfect size for my space, I went with it.
I searched around Pinterest to get some ideas about how I could use my chalkboard and was so inspired by all of the different ways that chalkboards have been incorporated into kitchens. With a few coats of chalkboard paint, pretty much any surface can transformed into one! Some of the kitchens had large, framed chalkboards that were simply hung on the wall, much like mine:
Several kitchens had chalkboards incorporated into their cabinetry whereas others found some incredibly creative spots for chalkboards using chalkboard paint:
Some people have even taken their refrigerators and turned them into chalkboard canvases, which is a great idea for ugly refrigerators that you aren’t ready to replace!
Are you inspired to add a chalkboard to your kitchen? Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
