Chalkboard Paint Backsplash



Did you ever want to try something but didn’t know if it would work out but knew if it didn’t it would be easy to do over?
That’s what I decided to do with the chalkboard paint, I thought why not, I still have the beadboard wallpaper I can use over it if I don’t like it. So here it is…

Just fooling around with the chalk

Than I got a little fancy with the chalk! I’m not very good with it but I love the look of it!

I just threw this up there before I took pictures:)

I still have the other side of the kitchen to do but have to wait until Stush tapes it off for me. We also have to get trim for where it ends.

This is what it looked like after I had seasoned it.

I’m liken it, even my husband likes it too!

That looks so good! I was mentioning to my husband just this week that I wanted to use chalkboard paint or beadboard on the kitchen backsplash. Yours looks so good I am now being swayed to the dark ( chalkboard lol) side. I wonder how it would hold up when hubby splashes pasta sauce all over it?!

I know exactly what you mean by just seeing if it works out! It looks great and goes perfectly with your dark countertops. No more searching for a pen in the kitchen either, lol.

I have seen chalkboard paint on almost everything but not a backsplash before. Why not?! It's perfect! Love it~

That turned out great! I've seen a few others doing that for their backsplash and it really makes a great statement. I love chalkboard paint!

I love the chalkboard paint as your backsplash. Your black and creamy white kitchen is so pretty!

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Oh cool! This is the first time I've seen this done. I think it looks great and fits in perfectly with your kitchen. The banner is very cute. I would probably be leaving all sorts of notes with arrows for my husband and son regarding cooking,coffee,groceries, etc. Very fun idea!

Looks great -- and so does your husband! :)
