Chalkboard Kitchens

The idea of running my bare hands over a dusty chalkboard gives me an uneasy feeling. Almost as bad as fingernails dragged across its surface. Even so, the idea of chalkboard as decoration, art or furniture and it’s ever changing surface is really appealing.

We had a chalkboard as a prop at our wedding reception with guests writing messages that got continuously more risqué as the night progressed.

I’m not entirely sure how you would get past all the chalkdust this would inevitably invite into your kitchen, but it does look pretty cool. I’ve always had a thing for black kitchens. Even if you didn’t mind eating a little chalk dust for these designs, it just seeing chalkdust around the kitchen would probably annoy the crap out of you.

Here are some of my favourite chalkboard kitchens from around the web. 

11 Magnolia Lane’s chalkboard pantry doors.

I love how she used chalkboard contact paper instead of paint so that it could be removed fairly easily. I’ve never thought about using contact paper before and now I’m thinking I could contact paper my kitchen too. Chalkboard contact paper is cheap from Amazon, although the shipping will probably kill me.

  1. When the cooking of meat is done, the meat is usually not cooked evenly on all sides.
    You will find them so much in varying sizes that they come
    in the range from very small and light weight to close to home sized.
    The size of your grill will most likely determine
    the size of your propane tank.
