Chalkboard Paint in the Office

Jenn of A Merry Mishap recently painted this gorgeous chalkboard wall in her home office. Although she came across a few dilemmas, the result is great. Her use of clever organization and a natural color scheme really make the chalkboard stand out.

Jenn came across a frequent problem; although she taped off her wall, the texture resulted in an uneven edge. She solved this problem by hand-painting a new edge. My favorite part is her unique use of IKEA storage pods. Jenn nicely separated the two sections of her desk with these round containers. A great way to contrast from the hard edges of the paint.

See Jenn’s blog, A Merry Mishap, for more photos and her summary of the project.
