If you want a chalkboard in a nice frame check out the connection above. This Etsy shop has lots of them and mirrors as well. There are other Etsy shops that carry them. You can just use the search engine. I think it is not to support artisans that are sometimes able to stay home with their children to do things. Better than buying everything in China. Of course if you have time to do it yourself by using the paint or vinyl, go for it.
Have a great day! Nancy Hehmann

This chalk board is custom cut to size and then trimmed out to match other moldings in the house. I'd say that often when you see a detail this fitted it has been custom built for the room. This is vitracite chalkboard on porcelain available thru pbssupply.com. More long lasting and smooth as compared to chalkboard paint and vinyl. Magnetic too!

Love them, too! Got very similar ones ("vintage", as in "genuinely recycled factory lights") over my dining table.
Hudson Valley Lighting makes several that are close in look. http://www.formplusfunction.com/products/index/Brand/Hudson+Valley+Lighting

These are from restoration hardware and then they were customized by a local Seattle plating company. Hope you find some for your home!

It is 'lockers' for the items that inevitably get dropped at the door when a family comes and goes. You could use it for anything that your home and lifestyle would require. Thanks for the interest.

I'd suggest going into your local lighting store and looking at the juno catalogue with a good sales person. I believe these are a Juno 4". They are a very nice basic light.

The trim was custom to match some aged oil paint used in the older parts of the home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to The Handsome Mud Room
Locker door faces offer another fun idea for chalkboard paint: Family members can write lists or reminders to each other as they come and go.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Chalk It Up
Keeping track of a family's chores and schedules is essential. Adding a splash of chalkboard paint to the cupboards in your mudroom will ensure that everyone is accomplishing their tasks and getting where they need to be on time.
Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to Get Up to Speed for Back to School — 12 Tips for Smooth Sailing
5. Post the schedule. At the beginning of the new school year, there will likely be schedule changes. Post the new schedule somewhere by the door to help kids — and yourself — get used to the new weekly routine. Include practices, classes and appointments.
