    Hi Jordan-you may even be interested in purchasing magnetic chalkboard paint!

    Paint it with magnetic paint and then chalkboard paint and then you can hang clippings etc up there too 🙂

    I love it! I have an old door that I have been thinking of painting and with that paint, then just resting it up against a wall…Great room!

    I always like this idea…though I am never brave enough to carry it out. Do it so that I can live vicariously through your decision!

    Just paint it right on the wall! We have a big rectangle by our garage door and a small square in our kitchen by the phone. We use them all the time. Our kids love them. You can always paint over it.

    Definitely use magnetic chalkboard paint. I just posted about ours that we have in the playroom. I love it because we can draw, tell stories with magnet words/pictures or just post notes!

    I have done this in several places in my house and we love it as well.

    I think mag paint is such a good idea, but we don’t have any space for it. I love that alphabet thing on the wall though. Cute.

    I have to rent, so I could only chalkpaint my dresser. It is still really fun though. If I could I would chalkpaint all over the wall. If you have a pantry, chalkpaint the doors. if you’re rich, buy old old elevator doors and make those your pantry doors. that doesn’t really have to do with anything, but I adore your blog and I love san francisco.

    i love that idea…but i will always support chalkboard…always 😉

    i do have to say, we tried the magnetic + chalkboard paint on our pantry doors and it was a total bear…10 coats of magnetic paint and things still don’t really stick. We actually bailed before painting it with chalkboard paint, so if I had a do-over i’d just go with the chalkboard paint…for what it’s worth.

    as far as making an awkward kitchen feel nicer, i would suggest some great light fixtures such as a nice chandelier or pendant. I saw a stunning kitchen where just the backsplash on one wall was painted a vibrant dark green and it made everything POP – bowls of fruit, counter top jars, etc..

    I’ve always wanted to do something like this. It’s in my to-do project folder. Looks cool though 🙂

    chalkboards will always be super chic! – When I used to share a house with friends we bought an old door and painted with with blackboard paint – as well as keeping a counter of how much diet coke the house consumed (wayyyy too much!) it was a handy way for us all to keep tags on where we all were in a given week! x

    Good idea! Our apartment had a section of cabinetry/counter that wasn’t permanently attached when we moved in. We put it in the center of the kitchen to use as an island and I closed off the back with a piece of board painted with chalkboard paint (our landlords didn’t mind).
    I can stand on one side cooking while my 2 year old son colors on the other side. His cute little scribbles definitely add some “homeyness” to the kitchen. 🙂

    I did a chalk board wall when I lived in San Francisco and I LOVED it. People that came over would write messages and draw pictures. It was a happy wall.

    I have been trying to figure out a way to incorporate a chalkboard paint project into my house somewhere too…I’ll be anxious to see how yours turns out if you decide to do it.

    Maybe corkboard is much better because you will not be using chalks that sometimes resulting to allergies. Corkboard may be used with pushpins for your notepads.
