Chalkboard in the home.

Chalkboard as we know is not just limited to use in the classroom anymore. I love the idea, and although this is not a new trend, i never tire of seeing how homeowners decide to incorporate its use in their home. This post features the use of chalkboard in a variety of spaces. I have been itching to paint a chalkboard wall in my own home, but haven’t yet. The intended wall(in my kitchen behind my dining table) got wallpapered
 instead:-). If you don’t already have a chalkboard wall in your home, maybe seeing its use in these spaces might inspire you!

In the dining room


In the bedroom (on the door or to highlight the wall being used as a headboard).


In the playroom


In the bathroom- how cool!

  4. It may not be a new trend but every time I see chalkboards in houses I'm always amazed at how good they look!Love especially the one in the bathroom

  5. I've always wanted a chalkboard wall in my kitchen.. but I never thought of using one in a child's room. Genius!

  6. this is SUCH a fun idea! i really love it, especially with kids around, it'd be so fun to say, 'yes honey, you can draw on the walls!' xoxo
