I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

My first Chalkboard Wall

I know this is old news to most bloggers. Sadly I am behind on the trend and honestly it doesn’t quite fit in my home (still contemplating it if I ever tackle the basement). However, in our new cabin a chalkboard wall seemed like the perfect way to spice up the kitchen. Here is the wall leading to the laundry room.

Bland. I applied two coats of the chalkboard paint.

And per directions “prepped” the wall by rubbing chalk all over it.

And voila.

A fun new wall for leaving notes to those staying in the cabin or other family members. I love it and it was such a quick and easy project. One small step in making 24 Spruce ours. (I do need to go back and retouch a bit but sadly threw out the tiny bit of paint left. Ooops). Not sure what to do about the light receptacle?

So fun! I love chalkboard walls and would totally do one if I wasn't planning to sell sometime in the near future. Have a great weekend girl!
