Put some chalkboard paint on it...

Ta-da!


As the picture says, it's been a long time coming.  Our kitchen has been an ongoing saga, everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong.  We've had to take the floor up because of an ant infestation, the washing machine leaked and wrecked the new floor - twice, etc etc...
For now, rather than replace it, I've decided to make the most of what we've got, but one thing we hadn't got was a cooker splashback.  My original plan was to have a map behind a sheet of glass, but that was working out too expensive for a cheap fix it job.  So after a bit of googling and Pinterest-ing, I found this image.  

Problem is now Al is concerned I'm going to go over the top with the chalkboard paint (in the style of 'put a bird on it') now I've spied this, and this, and this, and this, or this.

What a brilliant idea, my problem would be deciding what to write on it each day, I would never get anything else done : ) There are some great ideas on pinterest for uses of chalkboard paint, the possibilities are endless xxx

Excellent idea for splash back as you could put the weeks meals on it! Also love the idea of painting the fridge freezer especially if you have an old one, and the big calender is brill as well. Mmmm food for thought!!

I too, have been trying to figure out what to do around my stove for years! I might have to try this. Thanks for the idea.
Did you tack up something over the wall or just paint the chalkboard paint over it?

I love chalkboard things they're so cute! We have tiles on our splashback. Maybe thats a bit too normal eh?
