Quick Paint Project

I love the look and the options of a painted chalkboard wall. I knew I wanted to have one in my house but wasn’t sure what wall I wanted to paint. I kept putting it off but finally today I dove right it. It wasn’t a huge project. The wall is fairly small but still a good size. Plus I had to figure out where I am going to put the pine pie safe that was in front of the wall. Well it’s still in the middle of my dining room and I have no clue where I’m going to put it.

Notice the pie safe to the right of the picture. That’s the one I have no idea what to do with.  Please disregard the clutter. My kitchen/dining room was a mess while I was painting today.


This is the chalkboard paint I used. See the rubber band? That little tip I got from Pinterest. If you put the rubber band over the opening to the paint can you can wipe your brush on the rubber band instead of the side of the can. Way less mess.


Yay, after 3 coats of paint, it’s done! And I love it. Now what should I write on it?

Do you have a painted wall in your house? What do you write on it?

    Love it! I would like to do one for our homeschool classroom, but I’ve seen people use them in their kitchens for grocery lists and keeping track of appointments.
