Chalk Board Wall.

The chalk board trend seems to be taking over the web.  The black background with the eroded white text and scribbles gives a bold yet informal look.  It is a good look, only it is also my kryptonite.  I can only look and admire these rooms, but not venture into them.  Is there such a thing as chalk board phobia?  Something happens to my nervous system when I know what I'm talking about, I cannot even write about it, because of the effects it has on me.  I wish you all a wonderful weekend, I will be staying away from chalk boards.  Enjoy, Heidi

Heidi...I have always loved the chalkboard wall visual...especially in playrooms/childrens bedrooms/and utility rooms....but I must admit that the dust factor would get to me....I would definitely entertain the color though. I love a super dark charcoal gray or black room...especially with a whitewash....nice posting...K

I love a chalkboard wall and these pics are some of the best I've seen. I know what you mean about the chalkboard phobia though.

How true, You're right it's a great look but no one ever talks about the sound. (dirty little secret). Hope all is well! El

I love chalkboards!!! In the ideal world I would be able to write on every surface... a home should be a creators paradise, somewhere they could express their ideas at any time, in any way. A childs room would be a wonderful start! Thanks for sharing this great inspiration :)
