chalk1 Chalk it Up! One of the hot design trends at CHA Summer and one that we’ve already nailed here in our studio is chalkboards. Everywhere across the CHA show floor were things painted with chalkboard paint and covered with all sorts of messages.

At Michaels recently we discovered chalkboard paint in black and green and Rustoleum has a range of colors in its line of paints. All you needs is a couple of good coats of paint and when dry season the surface by rubbing it with chalk, wipe clean and you’re ready to go.
