I have completed my first chalkboard project. I know, I know…..I was slow to get on board.

I have had this $1 garage sale picture for almost a year (read original post here).

I’ve had this quart of chalkboard paint for almost the same amount of time.

I’ve had this blank spot on the side of my kitchen cabinets that just seems so bare….

I have this adorable husband who isn’t afraid to make holes in my cabinets.

I have this precious 2 year old who wants in all my pictures (look close…she is hiding).

I have this love of crystal knobs and animal prints.

I have a love for my Savior… Jesus Christ.

I now have a place where it all comes together perfectly.

(heading into my kitchen from my dining room)

Hopefully I will get on the next decorating “thing” before it’s almost over!

The Nester is having a chalkboard party here. Click over to get inspired!

  • Laci says:

    I have had the exact same spot and chalkboard paint for the same amount of time, yet no frame yet! Great Job! Gotta love hubbies that aren’t afraid to make holes!

  • Oh my goodness! I was not only looking at the chalk board but the cabinets and the wall treatment! I would LOVE to sit at your feet and soak up all you talents! I am a decorative painter also.. but I could learn a LOT from you! Thanks for visiting my blog! Now I can keep an eye on all you pretty things!

  • wow! it looks great! I love it.

  • Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions says:

    This is so great, Jennifer! I love the shape of that frame and what a great way to hang it. I have a cabinet panel on the one side of my refrigerator where something like this would work great. I don’t think my hubby would be as accomodating to drill a hole in it though {even though it’s a panel and not a whole cabinet!}.

  • Carmen says:

    I love it!!! The crystal knob is the perfect touch.

  • Danica says:

    That is simply beautiful!

  • KC Mom says:

    It turned out great! Did you paint right on the painting in the frame?

  • Shauna says:

    Jen…that looks so stinkin cute! I am giggling because I am making a chalkboard out of my old calendar holder…while my paint drys I was checking blogs! We share a brain. Yours is much cuter…can’t go wrong with crystal knobs and cheetah ribbon!!

  • Carmie - the Single Nester says:

    Looks terrific! I think I may make one myself.

  • Looks like the perfect spot for chalkboard art…and scripture.
    You can see it just when you walk into the kitchen.
    Sweet of your hubby to make a hole in the cupboard for you too!

  • That is simpy Fabulous!!

  • Annie says:

    LOVE it!!! and your cabinets, BEAUTIFUL! Your paint brush really is, “magic”!!! 🙂

  • Feather Hen says:

    Thanks for getting back to me, I really appreciate it! I have dreams of my cabinets looking like yours do actually. However, I realize you are a professional.. I may be shooting a little high! I can’t wait to try what you said, I think I will use the inside of my bathroom vanity door to check to see if the glaze will stick!

  • Jennifer Juniper says:

    The finish on that frame matches so perfectly with your cabinet! Love that your hubs would drill a hole in them 🙂

    It was so nice visiting and I’ll be back.

  • Christi says:

    The scripture you put on your chalkboard is the same exact scripture I used for a vinyl lettering project, and placed above my kitchen sink!

    You did a great job!!! I love it!!
