Chalkboard kitchen cupboards

Let me say that I love the idea of chalkboard paint on maybe a door or partial wall in a child's room. Not sure if I like this entire kitchen painted with it. Makes for a bit of a dark kitchen.

I saw David Bromstad do that in one of his Color Splash kitchens and I totally agree with you. It's all well and good if you are an artist and can use colored chalks to "paint" the cupboards with a garden or the like, but when your 3-year-old gets the idea that chalk on the kitchen cabinet s is OK, won't he/she also decide that other pieces of furniture and walls be equally acceptable?

Sort of like training my cat Dominic that he can't scratch on ANY carpet even though the stair carpet he has totally destroyed is one I'd love to replace anyway (industrial grade, to the basement...)...

Carpet is carpet, right? Just like walls is walls! LOL
