These are supposed to act like chalk but without the mess.

It cuts down on the dust buy a ton. We painted a table top in our Church nursery and use the Dustless chalk. The kids love it and it occupies them while parents are visiting.

We have a downstairs kitchen close to our boys’ playroom, and the fridge in there is ugly anyway! This is a perfect idea–especially, since we’re all word-nerds in my home.

Heather, Ashlea, Stephanie — I hear you. It’s true that a grocery list would need to be transferred to another source (paper/iphone/etc) if you wanted to take it to the store. I think what people are excited about goes way beyond that. The grocery list idea is just one example of what one could do with a chalkboard fridge. How about a place for phone messages, a place for kids to doodle, a place to write down a recipe or idea that comes to you while you’re in the kitchen, a place to leave a love note for your sweetheart.

Certainly, it doesn’t appeal to everyone (what idea does), but if you’re stuck with an ugly refridgerator, this seems like a fun (and eco-friendly) option while you’re saving for an upgrade.

Even better! We also did some doors and a few other spots around the house. Whole project took seven minutes. As far as the dust goes, I’ve been using the chalk markers and that has helped loads.

The way I see it, making a grocery list on a chalkboard which is fixed in your house is absurd. Particularly when it’s a fridge. Are you then going to drag that fridge to the store with you? In one magazine I saw a rangehood painted in chalkboard paint….chalk dust over cooking food? And why is it that everyone with a chalkboard in there kitchen is always in need of fresh herbs but never toilet paper? Sorry to be a party pooper…I just don’t understand the obsession.

I had this project earmarked quite a while ago, but had lost it! I love it, and the flat green would look great in my kitchen!

The idea of a shopping list on the fridge is cute, but totally impractical as you have to write your list down again to take with you to the store! Oof.

How can a chalkboard fridge look good with granite counter tops, and other nice appliances? Even if you do black it only is cute for a while…I don’t like when people are too trendy…this will look ridiculous in a few years.
