inspiration of the week: chalkboard paint

The next design project in our home really needs to be the nursery. But with finals week coming up, I just can't stop wishing for a home office to work and store all my samples and supplies. I'm pulling together an inspiration board for my dream office and I'd really like to do a chalkboard accent wall behind the desk. Chalkboard paint is not a new product and I've used it in the past for small crafts with great success. These spaces have me inspired to use it in a bigger way and what better place than an office?

Chalkboard paint needn't be confined to walls. This DIY Ikea chalkboard table is much more fun when you can draw on it.

Sadly, for now, the office will remain a bit of a daydream. Today we're off to try and figure out the baby registry. Practical things first!
