Okay, I have been hounding David for a chalkboard for the kitchen with cork board right next to it. I didn't know that Benjamin Moore makes a chalkboard paint until just now. I found the ideas on http://style-files.com/2008/09/02/blackboard-walls/ . It's so freaking cool! Go check out the ideas on this site. You can paint a whole wall, a door, or just a small area and then frame it.
Word to the wise: Those so called magnetic paints that are out on the market are a waste of time and money. They don't work worth a damn no matter how many layers you paint on that wall.
**A great idea would be to buy a piece of galvanized panning from Home Depote. Cut it to the size you want and frame it with a flat picture frame. You can even paint it with the chalkboard paint and have a magnetic chalkboard for the kitchen or the kid's room.
**Or go to Walmart
