a blackboard room

DSC_0695From the moment we moved into our new home, I’ve been trying to think of the perfect space for a blackboard wall. Papa and I prepped and painted a board when we moved in, which we use as a monthly calendar – you can see it here– but I wanted more. So I purchased a few cans of paint and ran wild in the guest toilet, of all places. This was the only room we didn’t paint before moving in because thoughts of wallpaper were swirling in my mind. Painting such a high ceiling room was torture at times, definitely harder than I imagined but I am so happy with the result.DSC_0741DSC_1003DSC_1004This is so much more fun than wallpaper. Our house guests certainly think so. We’ve had r-rated graphics and football team slogans scrawled across the walls as well as little poems and cute sketches. It’s weird looking at what a blackboard can bring out in people.
