From the very beginning of this renovation, I had planned on having a chalkboard paint wall. It changed places several times in the planning stages and the things I worried about turned out to be not a problem, for instance, thought it would be too dark or easily marred. It turns out, what bugs me about it is how messy it looks much of the time. I like the idea of people being able to write on my walls, but in practice it's often annoying. I get Preparation H added to my shopping list, or people scrawl something across something I just drew. So I've turned into a B-word about it, and I'm going to try something else. I'm going to do a mural with chalkboard markers and I'm going to HIDE THE CHALK.
Now if my Dick Blick order would just get here, chalkboard nirvana.
