We bought our home last summer, renovated (almost all of it) and moved in in November. I love my kitchen (particularly the glass tile back splash, which I am personally proud of because I helped install it) and the only thing I currently want to change is the cupboards, which were one of the only things we kept. There technically is nothing wrong with them... they just BORE me. So hubby and I think painting them white would look nice and it would be far less expensive than replacing them, especially since we put new counters on them already. I have a secret desire to paint the middle panel on row of them with chalkboard paint though. I'm not sure if he would go for this, but I love the idea. I would also be willing to paint a large chalkboard on this wall:
Notice how there is already a small chalkboard on it. I use it all the time to list important reminders for the family or where I will be working that day (as a substitute teacher). Now imagine a wall size board!
As part of my post for this weeks Gussy Inspiration Challenge I searched for inspiration kitchen chalkboards. While I would probably not be bold enough to do some of these things in my home, I think they are all creative and great idea starters.
