House Project - Chalk Board Cabinets


Sanded and applied latex primer layer

Let it dry, applied black chalk board paint!

Draw a bunch of chalk doodles on your cabinets!

How fun is this!? For the longest time since I was inspired by a section in the store Anthropology, I've been wanting to do this. Anthro had some old cabinet with black butcher paper in the middle of the cabinets frame and used some chalk to doodle some art on the doors. And luckily the house came equipped, begging for some love, and for this project. It really turned out to be quite easy and only somewhat meticulous at parts. And very surprisingly I only spent about $20.00 on everything including supplies and probably only took me about 4 hours to do. Just put on some Kylie and an ugly shirt to paint in and you're set! Try it, it's fun!

Now the only real thing left to do is go over the smudges with white paint, but eh whatever. I'll get to that eventually..... AND compare this to the way the kitchen used to look. Scroll down.

What do you think!?
