When all else fails, one of the best kinds of room decor can be found in a can of paint. But not just any cool color or uplifting warm hue will do the trick to give your room the inspiration it’s missing. It’s your own creativity that gives life to the world of chalkboard paint.
Takes you back to school days, right? Or maybe you fell in love sometime after watching (500) Days of Summer to work you through your last relationship. We all saw Tom rely on his ultra-cool floor to ceiling bedroom DRENCHED in chalkboard walls to draw out his love-torn angst. So why not create a similar space?
A space that speaks to you with your own thoughts and vision. This fast-drying, quick to throw up paint brings out a relaxing and fun spot that clinches onto quirky designs that speak with YOUR voice. Swap your fancy facade for a casual and invigorating design that’s interactive with your life, not adorned with pretty accessories.
Not too psyched about tearing off scraps of paper to write your thoughts down, just to have them pile up in your trash? Swipe on new dates for the gigantic chalkboard wall calendar you’re sticking with in all the years to come.
Write this down. But where?? Never lose your train of thought and forget thinking about those important notes.
The perfect frame doesn’t exist all the time or it may be sold out in stores. Get the picture? Well don’t, because the best way to frame your favorite memories are within these chalky beauties that really are the frames of your dreams.

Get the designing out of the way and enjoy the finer things with that dough. Without the vintage elegance of this headboard, your bed just looks like a mattress.
Anyone’s 3-year-old self can get used to a place like this. Only your wall art at age 18 and over has greatly matured. Nor will your parents yell at your this time.
Chalkboard can also make it easier as a way to organize. Like these wine glass stems.
Or spice jars:
or boxes and bins:
