The kitchen is a good place to use Blackboard paint. You can have your shopping list or a tasty recipe on writing. Provide an entire wall of Blackboard paint, or paint a loose Board. It is practical for your frame, but looks very nice.

The dark color of the paint gives a nice contrast, but in addition to the black paint is black Board paint also in other colors available. Blackboard paint is playful and gives the kitchen a different appearance. I find it very decorative stand and you can always change how it looks.
