Today’s #makeovermonday is part 1 of painting a family chalk wall!
I’ve seen walls on all kinds of blogs and Pinterest for years showing different ways to utilize chalk walls. Most recently, I was totally inspired by an episode of Good Luck Charlie that our girls were watching on Netflix:
Yes, it is a fridge. And I don’t think Brian will allow me to paint our fridge anytime soon. But, I’m always drawn to the cool look of this chalk.
Here is the wall that I feel is perfect to use in our home:
And my lovely models 🙂
This wall sits directly beside our kitchen and living room. You see it as you walk down the stairs and it has high traffic in our home.
When I mentioned to Brian that I wanted to paint it black chalk paint, he wasn’t thrilled.
But, I painted anyways.
I had a ton of energy earlier tonight, but I’m not feeling the best with this cold and my energy dwindled.
So, here is the wall with 1 coat of paint that isn’t even dry yet.
Brian’s comment: “We’ll see if it grows on me!”
I’ll have it all finished with a few fun surprises next Monday on the blog, so stay tuned!
For today’s giveaway – I created a mini chalkboard for anyone that might want to use chalk signs in your home, but you don’t have room (or the desire) for a chalk wall.
This was actually a makeover in itself!
It started as a cheap $10 print that we used for staging homes. It’s been sitting in storage for years.
I almost forgot to take a before picture!!
I used my Valspar Exterior Primer in plain white to paint the outside first.
Also, I learned a trick to dip your chalk in water before writing on a chalkboard. It will show light right after you write, but then dry super dark and defined!
And it turned out super cute~
