We thought we'd seen chalkboard everything: chalkboard walls, chalkboard doors, etc. But we'd never seen a chalkboard lamp until we spotted it at Green Depot a few months ago...
This Chalkboard Lamp by John Beck ($175 - $295) is made of 95% recycled steel. But your kids probably won't care about that — they'll be too busy drawing dinosaurs on it and practicing their ABCs.
And the lamps look really fun all lit up after dark.
You can purchase them at Green Depot.
