A little later in the evening I dug into by google reader, drinking in ideas and enjoying the fact that I have a whole slew of creative journeys ahead of me when we move. This post caught my eye. The Nester (LOVE her!) mentions chalkboard vinyl. Now, I realize chalkboard is all the rage right now for DIYers, but I had no idea this vinyl medium existed! It's like chalkboard heaven without any form of commitment! How great is that?
Immediately my mind started spinning with ways I could use this stuff and of course I headed straight to google to find how I could get my hands on this sticky wonder. I found some here for what seems to be a reasonable price AND the vinyl is reusable/repositionable. YAY! I also like their calendar idea...A LOT.
So, one thing led to another and I began to think about that tiny mid-century kitchen again. Right now I like the idea of adding simple trim to the plain front cabinets, painting them white, doing insets of chalkboard vinyl and perhaps "labeling" the doors with a chalker (rather than random scribbles or lists).
The fact that I wouldn't have to commit with chalkboard paint makes it even more appealing. Hmmm...we shall see.
In the meantime, check out these other cute uses for chalkboard vinyl...
