Perfect For Renters: 6 Blackboard Backsplashes

My husband and I recently moved from a home we owned to a home we rent. While I love the fact that we can call someone when the toilet overflows I don't love that the changes we can make on the home can't be permanent. Our kitchen aches for a backsplash and I've decided chalkboard is the perfect solution: practical and beautiful, chalkboard paint makes the space under your cabinets a useful area for grocery lists, recipes and love notes.TOP ROW
