Versatile chalkboard décor pieces can be easily moved from room to room
When in the market for new furniture keep an eye out for great pieces with good bones — things that can be used in various rooms in the years to come. That’s where chalkboard décor comes in. Items with a touch of chalkboard have such a classic feel, mixing with most decorating styles. This solid wood hutch features ten drawers with blackboard inserts. Its shallow depth makes it a nice selection for the breakfast area to store extra linens and tableware. The rustic finish gives it that vintage feel and, best of all, it would function well in any room.
Reminiscent of French Country style, this painted chalkboard cloak rack combo includes space for daily reminders. It would be cute to cover a few sections with corkboard, fabric memo board or vintage prints, making it one-of-a-kind addition for the back hallway. Down the road, it could be placed lower on the wall in a child’s room or playroom for drawing and holding dress-up clothes.
With a little imagination, anyone can create a treasure. A $3 garage sale score was vamped up with model car spray paint on the drawers and blackboard paint on the cabinet. The perfect chest of drawers for a boy’s room, but equally fitting elsewhere. For a bigger chalkboard statement, jazz up pair of sliding closet doors in an office or playroom or an entire wall in a contemporary kitchen. Great ideas, great pieces.
