Chalkboard Paint on My Hoosier

Hello to you! Been trying to do some catch up around my house, I figured it’s sure not going to get down until I do it.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and fell in love with it, thought darn, I have glass in my hutch doors but then my hoosier  came to mind and had a aha moment:) Already had the chalkboard paint so I went to town on it!
The dried hydrangeas I found in the mountains at a town festival for $4.00 a bunch last weekend.

Taped it off very carefully. I used 3 coats of the chalkboard paint btw!

So I tried a black tray from Pier One and of course it doesn’t fit with the basket up there and I like the basket up there, the tray is just leaning to much.
Do you see the faux bittersweet I found at GW a while ago?

So I thought I’d try one of the wicker trays that I found at the church sale, fit a little better but not quite! I’m leaving it there until I think of something elseSmile

Your hoosier looks great with the chalkboard paint on the doors. Love your blue mason jar collection up on the top. I can't wait to get mine back up in my kitchen. We heard that the countertops should be in within the next 2 weeks. I can't wait!!

Aren't you the clever gal? Great idea to put chalkboard paint on hoosier doors. What better place to leave a note, write down groceries you need, etc.
It sure makes me miss my hoosier we bought in KY. I miss it all the time
If I'd kept it I'd have taken out cupboards on wall in kitchen in our house now (western CO) and used the hoosier to replace them. Would have been so great.
When we bought our house here in CO there wasn't room for the hoosier so sold it, kicking myself just remembering. Wasn't til few months later I realized what I could have done with it.
Loved that darned hoosier. Until we got our new cupboards up in house in KY my dear hoosier held dishes, groceries. The cupboards in house were disgusting and there was no way I was putting my stuff in them. I felt like I'd cleaned up everybody elses' dirt, etc. far too many times when we'd moved into a place so I was waiting for my new cupboards to get put in. Had to wait for about a year with boxes of cupboards all over our dining room. Boohoo I want my hoosier back.

I have never tried chalkboard paint. It looks great on your cabinet. Such a neat message board you created.
