3 places to use chalkboard paint in the kitchen

There are a variety of ways you can display your creativity in the kitchen. You can show your style through the kitchen design, or you can add tasteful decorations. However, if you want to get really artistic you should try utilizing chalkboard paint. There are so many places in the kitchen you can apply this tool, such as:

1. The wall
If you want to use chalk as a form of decoration, paint the whole wall black. This large space will give you plenty of room for adding a little art to the area. It’s best to choose a wall that the cupboards butt up against so you can integrate it into the kitchen scene.

2. The cupboards
If you don’t feel daring enough to color the whole wall black, try picking a cupboard to use instead. This option looks especially nice with recessed panel cabinets, as Salvage Savvy points out, because you can just paint the shallow part of the cabinet. By doing this, you create a frame around your painted surface that draws the eye to the area. Feel free to decorate this painted surface however you want, but one idea you could implement is using this space as a grocery list.

3. The island
Paint the side of the island with your chalkboard paint for an instant play space for the kids. Since this area is so low to the ground, the children will have no problem reaching the board to leave you fun pictures each day.

I was so excited to find Benjamin Moore Chalkboard Paint, available in any color, which goes on smoothly, just like other paints—and with lots of fun colors to choose from, the blackboard no longer has to be black! And remember, in children's rooms, be sure to make your chalkboard low and large enough so that younger children can reach it and have ample space to write or draw and think beyond your walls and cabinets—use chalkboard paint on a child's table, flower pots, or colorful storage boxes. Turn any space in your home into a writing surface with these chalkboard paint ideas. From a reusable, eco-friendly list maker to a drawing surface, wall calendar, or child's activity center, these creative ways to use chalkboard paint will make your home even more functional. Have fun!
