I love chalkboards. I love how vintage-y they feel and how anything written on them just seems like so much fun! I have a dream to have a huge wall painted with chalkboard paint in my kitchen someday but until then, I have this framed chalkboard hanging in my hall.
I actually got this chalkboard from Liz from Say Yes to Hoboken in San Fransisco. She made it from an old frame with magnetic and chalkboard paint. She also drew the sketch of the Golden Gate Bridge in the corner (I could never do that) and its so good I don't have the heart to erase it!
This is so nice to have in the hall because I pass it anytime I go in or out of my room or the bathroom so I see it a lot. This picture was taken a while ago but right now it is covered in paint samples of colors I love and more instant pictures. I had big dreams of long lists of groceries and things to do written on this board but I realized after I got my first pack of chalk (did you know chalk is really hard to find?) and wrote that messy list you can see in the photo that I hate the feel of writing with chalk! So until I conquer that fear I guess I will stick to photos and paint samples.
Getting back to my chalkboard dreams, here are some other chalkboards from around the web I am adding to my chalkboard dream house.
I can only imagine what a good chalk artist could do with this chalkboard, imagine the dinner party conversation!
I love the idea of a chalkboard on a pantry door!
On a closely related note, how cool is this chalkboard globe? My dad traveled a lot when I was little and I wish I had this in my room then to mark where he was when he was gone!
