Chalkboard paint amazes me! Do you remember the first time you were called to the front of the room and got to write something on the chalkboard for the teacher? What magic that was!

Chalkboards are still magical to me...the predecessor of the Etch-a-sketch and the more modern Magna Doodle.
The magic of creating and then destroying by erasing, is addictive to me.
You can create and then erase all evidence with the swipe of a hand.

Chalkboards can now be almost anything you can put paint on.
Chiasso.comYou can write messages or create designs on the painted object.
I am still a little "old-school" and would be more comfortable reaching for a piece of chalk instead of a blackberry!
You could have a new car everyday! Can't you see chalk flames and pin striping?

I love the graphic designs with the word placement.

Now this is a room I need! A true think tank! I could work out designs and then erase them to move on to new ideas. Every day could be a completely different look.
Lauren Tennenbaum. Inspired by 16th c.grotesques,she painted the griffins on canvas and then applied them to the drawers.....they look chalk- like to me. I think I am going to do a series of furniture with chalk paint and feature ephemeral art on them. What a concept! You could change your furniture as often as you change your clothes! Thanks Lauren for the idea. ;)
