There is just something about chalkboards that bring you back to childhood. It is sad to think with so many new products available, such as dry erase boards, kids today may not get to experience the “click”, “click”, and “SCREECH” associated with chalk. Or, witness the pounding of erasers and the clouds of dust left behind. But who’s to say all the fun is gone? There are many ways to keep chalk alive in your everyday life. Check out some of the ideas below for incorporating blackboards into your home, office and garden. Whether you like the look of white on a crisp black or if you find something nostalgic in the ghostly white wash left over after a cleaning – there is no doubt you’ll find an idea that suits your needs.
If using labels – remember the more you have the higher the impact and the more organized you look =)
High impact doesn’t need to mean high dollar – with a little patience you can create a wall that serves as both function and art.
Get creative – the placemats were drawn simply on black craft paper (tip: use an existing placemat and trace around it for consistency) OR get the family together to create your next birthday invite or Happy New Year’s card
