Get the Look: Chalkboard Chic

I don’t really need to give you sources for chalkboard paint; it’s readily available. You can get it in any color, for walls or metal, and you can even buy a magnetic version. I mean, why limit your kids to chalk when they could be using the wall for Playskool magnetic letters. Or perhaps you’d like to break out that magnetic poetry set that’s been relegated to the back of a drawer. If you don’t have the space (or desire) to dedicate an entire wall to your chalky whims, you can pick up a freestanding board anywhere. Vintage ones are readily available too. Or, you can get your chalkboard fix with one of these cute chalkboard accessories.

Montage: Chalkboards

I know we’ve seen chalkboard chic time and again, but with the start of the new school year, I just couldn’t resist. So, secure your school supplies, especially some chalk. I wonder if banging erasers is still an acceptable punishment during detention? I’m thinking not.
