Chalkboard Entryway

2 Days

Ever since my husband and I moved into our house over a year ago, I've been itching to do something with the blank wall just behind the door. Here it is (to the left of the gallery wall) - plain and white and boooorrrringg. I decided things needed to change.
After a lot of pondering, I decided to go with a chalkboard well. I know a lot of people think that is a "tired trend" or "overused" but I personally really like the look and functionality of it.

    I have this. My dad surprised me with a chalkboard accent wall this week when I mentioned that I would love one in the kitchen to keep a running list of things we need.
