Interior Inspiration - Chalkboards

Happy Friday everybody!

I have great memories of times spent doodling with my sister on a massive chalkboard my parents put up in our childhood home.  We would spend hours making up cartoons, teaching each other "school" and scribbling.   Chalkboards are making a great comeback in the household in the traditional sense and in unconventional ways.  They are fun for children and adults.

Here are some ideas on how you could use chalkboards to enhance your home:













one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten

- Paint entire walls in chalkboard paint.  Without chalk, this becomes an accent wall.  In the kitchen, jot down shopping lists, menus and what's cooking.
- Paint an old piece of furniture with chalkboard paint.
- A DIY chalkboard organiser in your entrance hall can be a useful and homely element in your house.
-Typographical elements add bold personality to a space and can be changed easily.
- Chalkboard paint on containers and buckets is a versatile  labeling system.
