For the last two years I have been trying to convince my Tall Man that our pantry door would look great if it were painted with chalkboard paint. He was not thrilled with the idea of two black panels on the door. About a year ago my favorite mother-in-law brought our girls a chalkboard, easel style. It's big, it's bulky, and takes up quite a bit of room in my pretty nice sized pantry. After stubbing a few toes, knocking it over and spilling chalk everywhere, Tall Man was on board with painting the pantry door.
As soon as I got the okay I ran to Lowe's with a 10% off coupon and picked up a can of chalkboard paint. Didn't take long and the door was taped and painted. Woo hoo!
I also picked up a pack of Chalk Ink pens from Michael's (kind of pricey at $12 for 4.)
I love the way it looks now. My girls like being able to doodle close by while we're at work in the kitchen. Here it is!
