Chalkboard Paint

Using black chalkboard paint I painted the door panels on the inside of my pantry....It will be the perfect spot for grocery lists, meal plans, messages, etc and the bottom panel will keep the kido busy with doodles while I work in the kitchen. I also painted an attic access panel that is in our loft/playroom. It had looked very out of place before but this helps it look like it was supposed to be there. I found an adorable crystal doorknob rack at Hob Lob 80% off so I tied ribbon to the eraser and made a chalk holder out of wire and a mason jar.... Chal;kboard paint was easy to use fairly inexpensive and can be applied to almost any surface.

Love it. I am going to paint my entire kitchen in the stuff, and turn my kids loose. Maybe then I can get something done.

Great post, Mo!

Chalkboard paint is quite the craze these days and I am HOOKED! I love the way you stored your eraser and chalk. A-dorable.

Hey that was my idea for our attic access. We have one in Hanna's room that I put a magazine rack on temporarily. I love the idea for the pantry doors though!!
