Chalkboard calendar wall

July 30, 2009

Turn your diary into a style statement with this amazing feature wall idea from our September issue. Our cunning stylists mixed blackboard paint (£10.99 for 750ml, International Paints) with white matt emulsion to achieve different shades of grey for a chequer board effect – fabulous!

BlackBoardWall_00011I’ve recently painted a blackboard panel in our kitchen and it’s the best decorating decision I’ve ever made. It’s so handy for recipes, shopping lists, reminders and romantic messages to my other half such as: ‘Empty the dishwasher!’ Blackboard buys are everywhere at the moment, so you don’t have to limit yourself to writing on walls…

chalkyI like the mugs above from Really Linda Barker – good for labelling mugs in offices so you can remember how everybody likes their tea and whose is whose! The blackboard Matryoshka dolls are going to be on sale in Muji later this year in time for Christmas – what a great stocking filler – and the storage boxes with blackboard panels are available now from Store. – Ellie
