The couple always knows which cabinet holds seltzer or sugar. Jane and Darko painted the cupboards around their Frigidaire with Benjamin Moore Studio Finishes chalkboard paint, at $11.99 a quart, and then had fun drawing their own pictures. "The paint can says 'black,' but it dries a deep charcoal gray," says Jane, who used two coats. "Don't use primer," she adds. And make sure the cabinet isn't too smooth or glossy. "It needs a little tooth to it."
