Chalkboard Walls

One of the projects I have on my lists is to create a Chalkboard wall in our house.  It's a wall that springs inspiration, and is ever changing.  And it's really easy to do.  Just take a can of Krylon paint and paint as normal.  Here are a couple great spaces that have incorporated a chalkboard into their living space.

Do you have a creative area in your home where your children can {mostly} have their way?  I love having the home reflect everyone that's living there and spurring more creativity along the way.

These are so cool! I packed a can of chalk paint in my first crate to Morocco. And then we thought we might move so I didn't use it. When we got into our new house we were talking about moving after a year or so, so I didn't want to waste it. It is now sitting in storage in Morocco and as soon as we get it to Denmark I am slapping that stuff on the walls! No more moving for me! :-)

Kaitlyn- Happy to inspire! If you need a temporary chalkboard try some vinyl adhesives. I've seen them at Target, or here are some fun ones too:
