The Writing's On the Wall

Besides the functionality of listmaking anywhere and everywhere, chalkboards are great for quickie art!

I looooove the full-wall chalkboard but not sure I could handle the dust

Not sure how you would write on the ceiling - but it's nice to have it as an option?? 
I do love the fluidity (is that a word?) of the wall and the ceiling being the same with no trim. 

For a look that's less of a commitment, framed chalkboards are great and don't have to look like a grade school classroom - pick one with a funky frame!

This chalkboard below has a HILARIOUS story that goes with it (pardon the language).  If you need a good laugh today, check out the post here.  This is from Erin at Elements of Style and her

You can jazz up the breakfast table...

Or the kitchen...

Refrigerator door chalkboards - why didn't I think of that?!  duh!

Or the mantle...
(love this quote: "In Springtime Love is Carried on the Breeze")

Of course they're great in kids' rooms...

I adore this idea: "thank you God for: _______"
(would also be really cute in a kids' room)

Okay so this is outside a cafe but why not write words of self-flattery on the board??  Everyone needs a pick-me up sometimes!

And if you're going to flatter yourself - why not just do away with the bathroom mirror because you know you look great anyway?!

And while you're replacing mirrors with chalkboards -
why not replace chalkboards with mirrors?!

This lipstick-on-mirror look is incredible - love love love,
all it needs is a little red smooch in the corner!
