The New Kitchen Chalkboard

As I mentioned yesterday, we decided to try our hand at chalkboard paint...and I was very impressed with the brand we used - Rustoleum Chalk Board Paint!

Here is the before:
 And here is the after (that looks like I just painted with black paint):
So, I give this product a 5/5. It was super easy to roll/brush on, it didn't really smell that bad (although it was different than a 'paint' smell) and it covered my white cabinet after only two coats. I would highly recommend taping your surface before you get started...and I normally NEVER recommend taping.

However, I can't write on this for three days while the chemicals and blah blah blah settle and it forms a real chalkboard. But I'm looking forward to jotting all kinds of little notes here...such as "Shane - remember to win the lottery." or "The Wilsons Rule." or something in Italian, because that just seems like something you would write on chalkboard stuff.

I'll post a pic of some of our musings after Saturday!


  1. oooo this looks fun! I didn't even know stuff like this existed but we may have to check it out :)

  2. yay - looks great!! Take more pics after you write on it!
