The Humble Chalkboard…

                           Chalkboard paint and chalkboards in general are on my mine right now

This one in particular is inspiring me to no end
My love of Botanic Prints, Text and the humble chalkboard are
combined with loads of white
…..whats not to love, right?

Of course Pottery Barn have made a board which not only is simple and
stylish, but very practical.
What a great idea- the rails to not only hang extras from, but break up
the day into segments
…and who can resist a Chandelier??

    I sometimes spend extra time in bed… just gazing at our chandelier. Love them.

    Chalkboards are such a great idea to brighten up a kitchen and SUCH an easy DIY.

    Hi Ness!
    Chalkboards are pretty fancy these days. I would love to have the Pottery Barn one but I’m thinking it’s probably very expensive.

    Have a beautiful week sweet friend.

    I have a few chalkboards in my house and really like them. It is fun for the kids to draw pictures as the season change. It allows us to have an every changing art diaplay!

    Hi Ness, I must say i can not live without a chalkboard in our home. I have painted our pantry door and It is fabulous. I also made one for the nook at our farm house out of an old picture frame just like the pottery barn one. Went to lifeline found a massive old painting in a frame took the picture out and painted the backing that way you can also use it as a pin board as well. Sx

    That is a very fancy pants blackboard. I have a big one on the go at the moment. Maybe I should incorporate one of the hanging pockets into it. Hmmmm food for thought.

    Each house I move into, I say…”I am going to put up a large chalkboard” I have yet to do it for myself, only my clients. There’s always tomorrow! Thanks for sharing the pictures for inspiration.
