DIY Chalkboard Kitchen Cabinets with Contact Paper

Recently I shared my kitchen redo: Whole House Redo - The Kitchen where I removed a backsplash and put up open shelves on one wall and painted another wall black. Here is a reminder of that black wall... see the two small cupboards... over on the left side of the doorway?




Well I thought since they are so far away from the other cupboards in the kitchen that it would be okay to do something different with them! They are sitting over there all alone... looking all boring and forlorn!

So first I gave them a light sanding and two coats of some leftover white paint I had. I didn't paint the inset parts and you'll see why in a moment!


If you guessed chalkboard doors you were right!

But instead of chalkboard paint I used chalkboard contact paper!


This would be a perfect solution for ugly apartment cupboards!


Then I wrote "Pantry" on the top cupboard and just a list of what kind of stuff is inside the bottom cupboard... just for fun...


And because I'm a nerd... and I like to paint things with chalkboard paint and then I don't know what to write on them... :o/

(or in this case, chalkboard contact paper)

Let's see one more before and after!


And so here is the burning question of the day... Can one have TOO MANY chalkboard surfaces in their house??? :o)
