Kitchen Chalkboard Ideas

Now, on to the fabulous chalkboard ideas. I know this has been a trend for a while now, but I really love it. I made my own chalkboard in my kitchen earlier this year and just used these cute little chalkboard signs on my Fall dining room tablescape. So cute and versatile. And I especially love it for Fall. So here are some of my favorite chalkboard paint ideas. (And if you’re looking to turn anything into a chalkboard, THIS is my favorite chalkboard paint.)

Kitchen Chalkboard Ideas

Walk into the kitchen or mudroom, stand back and look around. Can the crooked picture hanging next to the window be taken down? How about transforming the space next to the refrigerator? Create a mental picture of what it would look like if that wall was converted into a writing pad. Ask if that location would be a convenient place to transcribe the weekend to-do list. Would large wall-posted phone numbers be easily read from anywhere in the kitchen? If the kids were being creative artists on the wall, would their presence hinder traffic flow? Are there any appliances that would have to be jockeyed around? Would a black chalkboard fit the kitchen color scheme or would green work best? Answering these questions will help visualize the wall being used even before it is repainted.
