Chalkboard Paint: It’s all it’s Chalked up to be!

Feeling the need to switch things up a little? Bored with those white walls you never got around to painting? Well I have the design cure for you! It’s called chalkboard paint. Not only is it kid approved (they can finally draw on your walls), it ca

A few months ago, I decided my cheap coffee table from IKEA wasn’t quite cutting it anymore. I told my boyfriend about my drab design problem and he suggested we make it into a chalkboard. He sanded it down, put a couple coats of chalkboard paint on it and, ta-da, my coffee table was young and hip again. When we have guests over, everyone enjoys being able to make their mark on our table. However, our table is not as awesome as this little cutie’s (The Imagination Tree):

Have fun with decorating and try something new like chalkboard paint! It’s great for all ages!
