chalk it up to…

Is it just us, or is there something a little special about writing with chalk? Maybe it’s school day memories or remembering sidewalk hopscotch designs, but there’s something about it that reminds us to take a few breaths and remember life’s about the simple things.
In addition to being functional, it’s the perfect way to add some style to some unexpected areas of your home. Available in multiple colors (tip: we love Rustoleum brand) and as easy to use as regular paint, it allows you to transform a space in your home in a few hours or less. Here’s a few ideas:
1. Paint a closet or bedroom door to add your own art as you’re inspired or messages to start the day off right.
2. Update your kitchen backsplash or pantry entrance – a perfect spot to write your latest Pinterest recipes, menu ideas and grocery store lists.
3. Paint a whole wall or room in an office – the black and white colors are classic for any space and the blank palette provides the perfect backdrop to add quotes to keep you motivated, to-do lists, and your latest inspiration.
4. Add the perfect, functional fun zone to a baby or child’s wall or room that screams “even though mom has great style, she’s cool enough to let us write on the walls.”
