I painted my kitchen back splash with black chalkboard paint. The white plastic outlet covers I had stood out like a sore thumb. I scratch up the surface with a bit of steel wool. I painted the outlet covers with grey primer first and followed it up with two coats of black chalkboard paint.


Ta Da!

Ooooohhhhh! Chalkboard paint on the backsplash! What a cute idea! I have been thinking about my backsplash. I need an inexpensive idea. How will the chalkboard paint hold up to regular scrubbing? I bet it would hold up great. I would be interested to know. Cute! Cute idea!

You can write a reminder to shut off the lights when leaving the room.   Grin
