The chalkboard wall trend has taken me a bit by surprise, but I kind of really like it. My friend Marilyn and I were talking at our Bison BBQ about chalkboards and she mentioned wanting to do a little DIY project with chalkboard paint. I think this a great idea and one I might have to steal (Marilyn a gracious lady and is kind of genius so I don't think she's going to mind).

Here's an example of a handmade chalkboard in a fun, painted frame...

Then, yesterday, heisschic from Technical Support sent me a link to IdeaPaint and now I kind of want a dry erase board to match my future DIY chalkboard.
The dry erase paint goes for $3.99 per sq.ft and I'd only need a little for a framed dry erase board. Wouldn't that be cool?

If I had a big wall that I could write on, I'd never be at a loss for paper when an idea for my blog hits me...ok, no, that's not going to happen. But I am going to work on the framed small boards, just wait...it's going to be awesome.
How do you feel about the chalkboard trend?
