I have a chalkboard wall!

I have been wanting to paint a chalkboard wall somewhere in our house for so long! I finally got the guts to do it last week and I am so happy! This wall is right off of our kitchen/dining area and is a very high traffic area. I know that a big black wall is a pretty bold statement, but I think it adds some modern flair to our house, and it is totally useable. I'm already enjoying the little bits of 2 year old artwork, and having a calendar that I can add to and change at my whim.

Here are a few of my inspiration photos:

I'm linking up to a Blog Party! Well fun! Check it out -



  1. Oh, I WANT one. I know exactly where I'd put it too. Congratulations on having the guts to actually carry it out.

  2. Love it. I've been wanting to do this as well. I just can't figure out where. Mine might have to be a chalkboard door.
    Thanks for linking up. I didn't realize you had yet until I got to the bottom of your post.
    So flattered.

  3. THis is SO fabulous! Your kids are going to love it!

  4. I think you chose the perfect place! Can't wait to see it! Bet L is loving it! Great job!

  5. I love this! I so want a chalkboard wall, but the hubby said no. :0(
    They just don't get it! Ha!

  6. Hi,
    Curious how much chalkboard paint you used in order to cover your wall? I am about to do a wall of the same size. Any help would be appreciated.
