Painted chalkboards have been all the rage in blogland for quite some time, and I tucked the idea away when I first saw it. Uses for chalkboard paint are endless and oh-so fun! You can use chalkboard paint on a pantry door, framed glass from an old picture, even an entire wall in a playroom if you’re a really brave and out-of-the-box kind of girl!

A tutorial at Take the Side Street was my inspiration to create my own small project for the kitchen.
If only my entire process was in pictures. It has been quite the comedy of errors…broken glass, 3 year old footprints and Plasma car tracks (yes, ON the freshly painted chalkboard, multiple trips to Home Depot) My husband will attest to the fact that we’ve been talking chalkboard paint for an awfully long number of weeks now. He’s probably really glad the thing is on the wall!
Don’t let that scare you, though! Chalkboard projects are actually very simple…if you know what you’re doing ahead of time:)
I started with an outdated framed print that I still had.
