Most people who have followed my steady decline into design-blog junkiedom for the past year are somewhat aware of my affinity for chalkboard paint.
I. LOVE. Chalkboard paint. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Now before you attempt to set me straight (and good luck with that, really), I am MORE than aware of the health issues that can accompany having chalkboard surfaces, and therefore chalk dust, in your home. And yes, I know that chalk gets on your clothes, and that chalk dust floats around in the air, and that all of those things would theoretically detract from the initial appeal of using chalkboard paint to make EVERYTHING in your living space more exciting. (And interactive!! It’s FUN, people!!)
However, I believe that chalkboard paint makes almost anything at least 75% more awesome. And so, I propose the following theorem**:
[Anything] + [Chalkboard Paint] = [Anything]*[MEGA-AWESOME!!!!!]
**This theorem may not be entirely mathematically accurate, but who’s counting?
Just LOOK at these.
I fully understand that, at least in REALITY, there is a long list of reasons why it doesn’t make sense to paint every surface in my new apartment with chalkboard paint. But in the unlikely story that is America, WHY CAN’T I DO IT ANYWAY???
