While some people may be over the chalkboard wall, I still get excited to see one if it is done well. Especially for a home with children, a chalkboard wall can be a great source of communication and inspiration for the family. It also looks super cool ;-)
Chalkboard walls are a really easy DIY project. You can simply get black or green chalkboard paint at any local paint store. It may be called "table tennis paint." To add more fun to your wall just add a magnetic primer underneath the paint, thus making your wall writeable and magnetic!
Or, if you want to be a little more fun, check out Hudson Paint which sells chalkboard paint in amazing vibrant colors. Look how great this mom used Hudson paint to keep track of her family's whereabouts.
