So chalkboards are nothing new - but I seem to be noticing more and more of these schoolhouse staples in residential houses. I usually really like the look - it adds a cozy, lived-in feel to the house. In my last apartment, I had a giant dry-erase board in my kitchen but it didn't last long. It simply became too ugly. A chalkboard could be a different matter though, since one doesn't have to write in florescent colors all the time. What are your thoughts? Do you have a chalkboard in your home?
I love this chalkboard/inspiration area of Carolina Herrera Jr.'s apartment
Chalkboard paint turns this screen or a wall into a handy place to jot notes.
