Chalk It Up

Chalkboards aren’t just for classrooms. Don’t believe me? Well ladies, be prepared to snag a box of chalk because blackboards have graduated to bigger and chicer things… and they are headed straight for your home! Thanks to chalkboard paints, you can make your mark on everything from flower vases to living room walls. Speaking of living rooms—you can paint a wall in your living room with chalkboard paint. And can write silly messages to one another on it and update it with fun drawings too. Or you can draw your country flag like this:

Pretty cool, right?

Now, you may be thinking, “I don’t think I want to paint an entire wall of my home like a chalkboard that will remind me of my 2nd grade classroom.” And you don’t have to. There are plenty of ways to incorporate this fun idea into your home. Here are a few ideas:
