It's Okay to Write on the Wall

Chalkboards have seen a renewed popularity in recent years and I can't imagine not having one in my kitchen, whether it's to post recipe ideas, seasonal drawings or quotes to live by. I've seen entire walls painted in chalkboard paint, covered in wonderful drawings like an ever-changing art exhibit. Now Hudson Paint has come out with a range of 24 mouth-watering colors of chalkboard paint, making it hard for me to decide what's going to get painted next. I think if I had a child, giving them a chalkboard wall would be a great way to encourage creativity but I also love Raina Kattelson's idea of painting it on jars for changeable labels. Anyway you use it will brighten up the room and encourage imaginative thinking!
