Chalkboard Walls

As a designer I want to bring you fresh new ideas.  The boldness of this concept may cause you to pump the brakes. Just when I thought I had seen every possible use for chalkboard paint, check out this artist studio (seen below),  drawers painted black for easy labeling, great space.

I like the idea of painting whole walls with blackboard paint.

Below: This kitchen in London has a very modern edge, but the chalkboard wall adds an unexpected vintage touch.

Below: Of course, if you don't feel like committing to painting an entire wall, a giant schoolroom blackboard will do nicely.

Below: A door painted with chalkboard paint serves as a giant shopping list in this kitchen from Living Etc.

Below: Another door painted with chalkboard paint; via Living Etc, notice the framed medic cross,  what a novel idea.

  The vintage lamp and file drawers,  wonderful details!

Modern is what we are seeing more of these days and we should not be afraid to mix it up. You do not have to break the bank with this idea,  chalkboard paint is inexpensive and can transform your surroundings.  Give your home a completely fresh new look.

Everyday is a gift….

  2. Love the chalkboard walls! We just finished up one in the hall off of our family room HERE Also, there is an amazing one at BLT Steak in Scottsdale, AZ. It must be over 25 feet long. It's lovely.

  3. Always love chalkboard paint for playrooms or doors but I know I could not handle an entire wall.

  4. When the BIOS and CMOS settings of your computer have now been tampered with, a shutdown problem might result.

  5. Figure out whether your home business idea is workable.
    The answer is two-fold: a) customers are now more conscious about the environment and prefer companies that employ methods that return to and save
    the environment; and b) green business management means increasing
    your customer base while also saving a considerable amount on your day to day expenses, thereby increasing your profits.
    Data collected from surveys reveals that those people say they
    are only willing to spend $1,000 to start business.
