Schoolhouse Chalkboard Wall and New Light

I finished this project back in November.

I always thought about painting this wall in our hall for a while and I decided to go ahead and do it. I went with school house green because I wanted something different then black.

Here is the before. Just a plain wall with the emergency oil switch. This hall leads to bedrooms, mudroom and garage and to the living room and kitchen. So a lot of traffic comes through here.

 
 

I used the rustolium chalkboard paint at Home Depot and had them mix the color schoolhouse green to it.

The light fixtures were found at Walmart and part of a vintage collection. They were a clearance find from $20 and I paid $8 for each. I bought four of them so two went in this hall and the other two in the mudroom.

i like the industrial look, much better then the boob light.

Harper likes to write on this and I put announcements or birthdays for that month on it. I really just like the look of chalkboard paint.

This is a easy diy project and changing out light fixtures is a great way to update a space.
