    I think I'd like to give it a go in our home, but I'm just not sure where. We don't have an infinite amount of wall space and our kitchen is on the small side with very few cabinets. So, maybe THAT will be the challenge! ;0)

  2. Blueprint Bliss says:

    Don't have it. But if I had a random door in the kitchen- I would paint it. I loved the one Fran Kennan did in her house (published in Cottage Living).

    I like the look, but honestly, I hate CHALK! If they could come up with different chalk I'd do it 🙂

  4. LindsB says:

    I love my chalkboard frame thing. I'm only sorry I didnt use the magnetic paint as well. I saw it at home Depot when we were getting the chalkboard paint but didnt get it. Kinda upset now about it.

    I think its great stuff and its always nice to be able to write stuff down on the walls 🙂

  5. Sweet Nothings says:

    i love it. its going into my kids playroom when i have them. in like 500 years. i have to find a husband first i suppose.

  6. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    Danielle, you crack me up. I love the way it's done in Tori and Deans playroom. Where there is chalkboard paint from the chair rail down, but of course I couldn't find any images of that to post.

  7. Sarah Jane says:

    i want a chalkboard wall, i love it:)

  8. Lynett says:

    I'm actually working on the same project this weekend. Just limited to this tiny corner space I have in my kitchen! I can't wait to see yours!!

  9. DesignerGin says:

    I used the magnetic paint under the chalkboard paint on one wall of my baby's nursery. I love that my hubby write a new note to the baby everyday.

  10. Beth Dunn says:

    I'd love to have some more, I only have a little on one door. xo

  11. Yansy says:

    I can't wait to see how it turns out. I want to something similar in my kitchen but it will have to wait until after we move.

  12. New England Girl says:

    I am not sure I would enjoy this in my home, but I have seen it used creatively other places!! 🙂 It's such a neat idea.

  13. Gwen says:

    I am with urbansardines, I don't do chalk. Therefore I never got on this bandwagon. Chalk makes me sneeze just looking at it, even when I use it for sewing I wear gloves.

    I do love that border look in the arts and crafts style picture that you chose.

    Magnets are cool though:)

  14. highglossblue.blogspot says:

    I have not used it yet either, but would love to find a spot for it. I love the idea of interacting with your space! Read about whiteboard paint not too long ago in MET home, love to try that, too!


  15. Rita says:

    I love the look – in the right place. For those tempted but afraid, start with painting a door on the inside of your pantry or kitchen cabinets. It's usable for shopping and 'to do' list, but no one knows it's there except you. Test drive it, and then decide if it's a look you'd want on a wall.

  16. my favorite and my best says:

    i am kinda over it.

  17. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    I still love it – there's some really cute chalkie-stuff on Etsy, too.

  18. fromtherightbank.com says:

    I really wanted one for a while but heard that it gets really messy so I decided against it. I still like them a lot though and think one wall would be really striking.

  19. Courtney says:

    I love that Jon's getting all into it now! Can't wait to see the kitchen part.

  20. down and out chic says:

    i am totally fine with the trend b/c i love using the paint. it's so easy!

  21. Style Court says:

    I still like the look too.

    Camilla, thanks for your comment on the fabric covered boards — hanging jewelry on them is a great idea!

  22. Dallas Landrum says:

    Before you spend the money on the Lillian version take a look at this website: http://housewares.hardwarestore.com/37-188-contact-papers/chalkboard-contact-paper-105260.aspx

    It's contact paper that is chalkboard. No joke, it's the best thing! You can stick it on, it erases very well, then if you want to move it, it comes right off!

  23. PS~Erin says:

    That was so fun to get to the end of you post and see a link to me 🙂 Thanks!

    I love chalkboard paint. I recently made my first one and love it so much that I'm set to make another. Wish I had the guts to do a whole wall, but the idea of all that chalk dust makes me a bit apprehensive. Looks so cool though. And we all love our one. Don't think I'll tire just yet of it.

  24. Kotori says:

    I have mixed my own colors of chalk board paint and painted it on my kids doors – a little more subtle than the black. I like that it doesn't have to look like a chalkboard all the time!

    These images all look great and get me thinking about where else I could put some!

  25. Lauren says:

    haven't used the paint but we love our big chalkboard in the kitchen!!


  26. Stephanie Sabbe says:

    if I thought I had good handwritting I so would have done this a long time ago

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
