Pantry Chalkboard


I would still like to talk you out of it, but in fairness thought I would pass on the Benjamin Moore now has a chalkboard paint you can tint to any color in their collections. Just the concept of thinking you can abrade a paint surface for long is weird. I would still do plex and whiteboard markers or something. Obviously you can get plex in colors.

Pantry Chalkboard


Quart of paint $20, they claim it will cover 10' X 10'. 100 sq ft. Lower to 75 sq ft; one coat won't cover or last. + frame.

4' X 8' glossy white hard board (dry erase) $15 max. + frame And dry erase would be better for kitchen. Grease and "ghost" messages cleaned off with alcohol based window cleaner. Here's a "how to" http://kohworkn.com/big-8x4-diy-dry-...for-around-25/


Or your left over shelf/windows, can be painted from back side. Plex pro'lly won't ghost as bad, but I don't really know.



















Here's a "how to"
