I am working on a chalkboard for Greta’s room this week! I really wanted something that we can hang on the wall rather than painting the wall directly. Chalkboard walls in interiors have been around for a decade or more in the design world and they have come a long way, but chalkboards have been around, well, a lot longer. While you can now make chalkboard paint in, literally, any color you want (whether you make it yourself or buy it), for Greta’s room I want to stick with the classics: black or green.
This weekend, I found inspiration in such a funny place. We were in Utah for a wedding and reunion with my dear friend and stopped at Cubby’s for lunch (get the Tri-tip sandwich–cali style!) and I found myself completely enamored with the decor, especially the green chalkboard walls. It felt so fresh!
So now I am leaning toward a green chalkboard for her room–and feeling really excited about the layer of color it will add. I’ll definitely be back with those details soon.
I was telling my mom that I leaning toward a vintage green chalkboard look and she adamant that the real vintage would be black. Haha! The internal battle of which really feels more classic: green or black chalkboards continues to stump me. I like both looks! I suppose real slate blackboards were the original, right? But green has that vintage charm. What say ye? Which is more classic looking and would you hang a black or green chalkboard in your casa?
