I recently came across this picture of a restaurant interior and thought the corkscrew was an ingenious and fresh use of chalkboard paint ~ admittedly a trend that has been a wee bit overdone. Don't get me wrong, I love it and have a great vintage blackboard in my own kitchen.
I got to thinking about other new and fresh ways to use the paint, and came across some really great ideas!
|My kitchen blackboard.|
|Painted onto the backs of cabinets, or even bookcases, I have used wallpaper to do this, but never chalkboard paint!|
|place mats. A cute play on blackboard menus.|
|No needles to sweep!|
|A menu is fairly common, but I love the subway tile frame.|
|It works in a modern setting as well!|
|A great way to practice your geography,|
|A wall calendar in various shades of gray.|
|Come on! SO creative,|
|Kitchen back splash! I'm also loving the little cookbook shelves above, but I digress.|
|Painted trays. Serve decanted wine and write the vintage on the tray!|
|Chalkboard paint can be any color you wish!|
|I'll say it again - I love a painted stair!|
