Mr. “Oh My Gosh” has been complaining since I took down our kitchen chalkboard and replaced it with a cute little mirror! (GOT to check the face and hair before heading out the door each morning!) He actually likes for me to make “to do” lists, and the best place for that was the chalkboard.  (does your husband complain that there is NO honeydoo list????) I know, I know, life is tough…

Anyway…chalkboards ARE fun and practical. Remember what a thrill it was when you were chosen to be “blackboard monitor” in school!?  I’d LOVE to find a big vintage rolling chalkboard for our home so I can make some really long to-do lists and order my man around.   Meanwhile, I’ve fallen in love with magnetic chalkboard paint, which comes in gobs of colors (although my favorite is still black) and can be painted just about anyplace you might want to write and express yourself… walls, cabinets, furniture, even refrigerator doors. Look at some FAB things you can do with this paint in your home!

Just think of the lists/messages/reminders/recipes/schedules/announcements/love notes and plain old fun one could have with chalkboard painted walls in the kitchen and dining room!

Love how the paint and chalk becomes the art for the entire space.


Your workspace could be soooo organized.

Imagine the “to-do” lists that could be conjured up in the bedroom!!!!

Genius!  If you don’t have much furniture or art… just draw it in!

more chalkboard

And if you do have the furniture… chalk it up, with stories, homework problems, game scores and inspiring messages!


Chalkboard coffee table

BEST yet… the ability to write when having your most inspired ideas!

LOVE the possibilities!  Have you chalked up any walls?
