Kitchen Chalkboard Wall

I've always drooled over those cute chalkboard walls on Pinterest. I woke up one Saturday and decided to go for it, it cant be that hard right? Right! I called on my trusty design partner Gavin and we got to work!

First he measured out the lines and made sure everything was level

My kitchen is pretty small, so without much wall space, I decided to create a column effect. Gavin and I are both perfectionist so getting the measuring right probably took us the longest.

Pay attention to detail


Chalkboard paint from Lowe's was barely over $10! 

I started to paint, but left the job to the pro in the room ;)

Here the paint is still wet. 

This paint dries pretty fast, but we decided to speed up the process with a fan.

Completely dry here

An important step is to "chalk" the entire wall. This prepares it for your cute little sayings!

Wipe down the "chalked" wall with a rag and you're pretty much done here!

Now it's time to "doodle"! Simple and fun project complete!

This cute project took about 2 hours to complete and is a great Saturday project! I love it! (I would recommend a few coats of the paint if you plan to draw/write on it often to prevent scratching through to the wall) Let me know if you decide to try it out :)
