Chalk isn't just for Kids

Paint your walls with chalkboard paint and have a ball! It'll add a personal touch and create lots of fun and energy in your room. It also serves a functional purpose, too - Gotta remind yourself when that Avett Brothers concert is or what you need to buy for your picnic soiree next weekend.

Hanging a chalkboard map and marking the countries you've visited can be a conversation piece in your home and also be a fun game for the kids. Paint ordinary accessories with the paint and give them a little pizzazz! Ex, for those of you who garden, labeling ordinary or old pots will make your herbs cute and help when trying to identify the cilantro from the parsley. 

Painting old furniture with chalkboard paint is an inexpensive and clever way to give it a new life.

We're excited about adding a chalkboard wall in the dining room of the Gastropub we're currently working on - we'll keep you posted as it progresses!
