This is a cool idea and look! Thanks for sharing. I was wondering if you would you be willing to share the paint color you did for the stripes on the wall and the color you did in the kitchen and laundry room? Thanks

On Michelle's blog she writes that she used Behr paints from The Home Depot. The white stripe in entryway was done with Ultra White by Behr, but she doesn't remember the name of the gray stripe. I suggest trying Garden Wall 730D-4. For additional colors, you can leave a question on Michelle's blog: http://www.windhula.blogspot.com/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

As Michelle states, "Projects always take triple the time and triple the money you originally plan for. However, the time and effort are always worth it in the end." One wall of the entryway is covered in chalkboard paint — the perfect spot to jot down a quick note or write a favorite quote.
Lily Gahagan added this to Grown-Up Ideas for Chalkboard Paint
The entryway is a prime spot for notes on things to do, errands to run and dates to remember... Or to give visitors a taste of your sense of humor.
Erin Lang Norris added this to 12 Ways to Avoid Entryway Chaos
Personality. Adding something that will make you feel at home and your house guests feel welcome is a gateway to happiness and conversation once you're inside. This chalkboard shows off this family's fun and creative style, and also gives them a place to see daily reminders before they leave for the day.
This hilarious entryway reminder in DIY design blogger Michelle Hinkley's home probably applies to most families out there.
Houzz added this to Inscription
Personal mottoes made with stencils and decals make less-permanent inscriptions for those with evolving tastes. Even a motto drawn in chalk can have the resonance of an inscription.
Becky Harris added this to The Best Chalkboard Wall Art on Houzz
Some people express some great and hilarious messages on their chalkboards. “Live. Laugh. Love.” is so 2000. These folks are miles above that schmaltz.
“Remember … As far as anyone knows, we’re a perfectly normal family.” — hilarious homeownersUsually I would not include an ideabook I wrote in one of these roundups, but Houzz user Joanne Padvaiskas told me to, and I aim to please. So in the spirit of all the fun I saw this week all over Houzz, I collected the best chalkboard art I’ve seen around the site. Full story: The Best Chalkboard Wall Art on Houzz

I would like to make the kitchen pantry door into a framed chalkboard...great for two retired teachers...maybe I could get Larry to make some designs for me...or bring stencils from Poland. Also could incorporate MAGNETIC paint for additional art...say, my art magnets as a frame.
