My husband and I couldn't come to an agreement as to what type of tile to use on our kitchen backsplash. Years passed and the cheap builder paint on the backsplash was now worn through to the drywall and stained, looked terrible and made me feel stabby just looking at it.



As a temporary fix, I primed the wall with gray stain blocking primer and two coats of chalkboard paint.

We like it so much, we're making it permanent!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Genius! That is the only word to describe this. I would leave messages to everyone or recipes while I'm cooking.

I love this. I'm actually in the middle of repainting my kitchen cabinets right now (post forthcoming when I get finished) and have been thinking about putting chalkboard paint on a couple of the doors so my husband and I can leave messages for each other. I may do one with chalkboard paint and one with magnetic paint so I can scribble notes on one and stick recipes and stuff to the other.
