Chalkboard Paint!

I think people have a love - hate relationship with chalkboard paint.  I fall into the lovvvve category.  I just love it in small doses because it adds instant personality to ordinary objects.  I do not have enough guts to paint a whole wall with it {perhaps one day in a playroom though} but for now I want it somewhere small.  I like how in some spaces it gives the room a playful feel…although since I am clean freak my chalkboard wall would have to be clean…not that smudgy look.  I really enjoy it on labels…like on your kitchen canisters.  All you would have to do is purchase glass ones from Ikea and add this yourself with paint.  I am going to do this one day in my pantry.  That sounds like a good summer project!

How precious are those tags?

Isn't this crazy?  Laura, who is a designer, painted her white refrigerator with it.  She also painted her dishwasher the same color as her cabients.  Very clever.

It looks fantastic in that gold frame!  She bought an antique mirror and just busted out the mirror and painted the backer board with chalkboard paint.
