Look! Black Chalkboard Mantle

Look! Black Chalkboard Mantle

Yes we know, it seems that chalkboard paint has been applied to everything, but we just loved the idea of a black dramatic mantle that you can write on:

For a while the green version of chalkboard paint has been really popular and we're loving a throwback to the chalkboard's original color, black. It makes us a little nostalgic, plus it looks dramatic and (in a less cluttered context) could look sleek and modern in a way that we don't normally think of chalkboards. What do you think?

Did you know that you can make your own chalkboard paint (in any color you want)?
