Love this little fridge decal from Wall Candy – super way to add a bit of personality to the stainless steel that we see is everyone’s homes these days.chalkboard dining room wall 216x300 {Creative} Chalk Boards

As this photo from Canadian House & Home shows, chalk boards can actually BE the wall!

Last month, Ashley at The Handmade Home painted her fridge! Great alternative to buying a stainless one – and SO much more personality! She gives a step-by-step tutorial so you can do your own transformation.homemade house chalk board fridge 300x206 {Creative} Chalk Boards

Another creative idea is the use an existing piece of furniture as a chalk board just like Heather at Whipperberry. Her armoire makes a cute chalkboard armoire 199x300 {Creative} Chalk Boardschalkboard menu!

All of these are such great ideas! One note, however, chalk is messy and produces dust!

A client of mine is a school teacher and he would absolutely not let his wife and I put a chalk board in their kitchen. He did not want to put up with the dust. So, word to the wise if you decide to chalk something!
