i have been painting all sorts of chalkboard walls over here lately. it was totally on a whim too. one of those, "i think that wall would look better as a chalkboard", because i'm sure you have those all the time. i did it all by myself, aren't you proud? camden was but mostly because i didn't have to make him help, due to the fact that he was at work and all. anyway, i am really loving the contrast between the black of the board and the crisp white of the wall to the side. it really makes a statement doesn't it? plus i figure we'll stop forgetting groceries on account that it makes a killer "what i need at the store" wall.
