Never overlook the amazing possibilities of a blackboard. No longer just for the classroom (yes they actually used them when I was at school!!), the humble blackboard can be included successfully in every aspect of the home to create something practical or just plain beautiful.
From shopping lists in the kitchen to typographical works of art, blackboards create a casual, relaxed focal point in a room. More exciting than that you can change the artwork any time you tire of it. Perfect for special occasion decoration, important reminders, inspirational quotes, favourite song lyrics or just for fun.
And the very best part? Blackboards are super inexpensive, in fact you can turn just about any surface into a blackboard art; walls, doors, furniture, cupboards, picture frames……..the list goes on…….

Porters Paints have even created a range of coloured blackboard paint perfect for kids rooms or play areas. Imagine the possibilities on furniture, novelty objects and other items to use as a base for decoration, creativity and communication and the smooth finish is very easy to clean. I recently painted the back of my daughters bedroom door which she has madly decorated and her desk drawers in traditional black. So handy for labelling…..
So much fun and such versatility, the possibilities are endless…….. What will you paint?
