Good idea. Still wondering about chalkboard and greasy fingers though. Not sure they're a great combination.

I am sure it can be cleaned with Windex or de-greaser!

Where do I get that amazing kitchen light? - I'm remodeling the entire house. We've got to decide on lighting thruout house even though the "big" kitchen remodel will come later. I'm doing Swedish style and this light is perfect for over the kitchen island--not too big but plenty of light (right? need to know the wattage and I want to use LED lights whenever possible) Thanks!

Those brackets can be found at any local hardware store - and the shelves appear to simply be painted wood planks.

Not certain who made this chandelier, but a great source for custom chandeliers can be found at:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

KitchenLab | Rebekah Zaveloff Interiors added this to Kitchen Layouts: A Vote for the Good Old Galley
Here's another loose interpretation of the galley kitchen, since there appears to be base cabinets on the right foreground. But the sink, range and refrigerator are all on one wall, so it made the cut.
Lily Gahagan added this to Houzz Tour: Lauren Liess's Pure Style
"It really works for our lifestyle, and I doubt I’ll ever go back to having cabinet doors," she says. "Emptying the dishwasher got so much easier, I love seeing my collection of dishware all the time, and guests are free to just grab what they need." Christian draws on the family's chalkboard-painted fridge.
Lily Gahagan added this to Grown-Up Ideas for Chalkboard Paint
Breathe new life into an older fridge with a coat of the paint.
Lily Gahagan added this to Spruce Up the House With 50 Clever DIY Ideas
Designer Lauren Liess decided to turn her older refrigerator into a work of art with a few coats of chalkboard paint. Now her kids have a space for drawing, and she has a handy spot for the grocery list. Here are instructions for covering your fridge with chalkboard paint from green living expert (and blogger) Danny Seo.
Becky Harris added this to Kitchen Solution: The Open Island
An island with metal legs and a laminate top keeps this kitchen light and airy, thus (the open shelves used in lieu of traditional cabinets have a similar effect). This is a great example of modernizing the cottage style.
Becky Harris added this to 6 Favorite Family-Friendly Homes
1. Pure style in Northern Virginia: Chalkboard paint on the refrigerator means mom can keep a running grocery list and schedule up top, while tots can draw whatever they like on the bottom.
Laura Gaskill added this to Decorate with Intention: Create a Vision for Your Home
Look for patterns in what you love.Once you have amassed a large collection of inspiration images, sit down and take some time to begin picking out themes and similarities in what speaks to you. For instance, my inspiration file almost always includes lots of pictures of open shelving in the kitchen and chalkboard paint. This is an important step, because it will help you hone in on what you really love.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Chalk It Up
The idea of giving a refrigerator a facelift with chalkboard paint is so inspiring. Do you have a functional fridge that could use an update? Here it is! Children will love drawing as you prepare meals, and you can't overlook the list-making possibilities.
Kathryn Peltier Design added this to How to Add a Kitchen Message Center
Chalkboard paint can even turn your refrigerator into a message center. Chalkboard paint cost: A can of Rust-Oleum Specialty Chalkboard Paint, 30 ounces, costs about $10. It comes in green or black and will cover 110 square feet. Benjamin Moore offers chalkboard paint versions of all of its regular colors. Or you can make your own.
Fred Albert added this to How to Childproof Your Home: A Grandmother’s Wisdom
Here’s the bottom line: If childproofing teaches our little ones that anything within reach is fair game, we have done them and ourselves a serious disservice. Not only will visiting friends or family be a nightmare, but your kids will not have learned a basic precept of civilized life: respect for other people’s property. In addition, self-restraint and self-control will be a more difficult to learn when they start encountering life’s realities, which will begin around kindergarten.

грифельная краска для холодильника
Maria added this to 3Кухня-гостиная
В последнее время стало модно покрывать холодильники специальной грифельной краской, чтобы на получившейся поверхности можно было писать и рисовать мелом, оставляя членам семьи милые послания или информируя их о сегодняшнем меню. Такая краска может быть белой или черной.
