Monday Love: Black is beautiful!
It isn't a matter of black is beautiful as much as it is white is not all that's beautiful. Bill Cosby
Chalkboard walls are not exactly a novelty, but i just liked these pictures so much and found them so inspiring. I'm thinking of "blackening" one wall in our office that way, for it's not only practical, but also allows some creative fun and doodeling in between.
I wish i'd known about this when my kids were small - they loved painting and drawing on the walls - once, they used my favourit lipstick for an abstract mural all along the hallway ...
