Chalkboard is obvi nothing new these days. If you follow any interior design trends or even do a light browse on Tumblr these days, you know that chalkboard paint is EVERYTHING. I LOVE it a little too much! It’s my dream to have a little country kitchen with a chalkboard wall. It will happen, however, until then I will kick it apartment style and chalkboard what I can. I thought I would show you what I have done in my own little apartment here in Frenchland…CHECK IT.
This old dresser has been in my boyfriend Daniels family for quite some time. When we received it, I believe it was baby pink. We refinished it, painted it white, and we have used it in our bedrooms for years! This year we refinished it yet again in chalkboard paint and then added some new handles. It really goes to show that with a little effort you can recycle things you already have. Also, right now the dresser is being used as a little bar in our kitchen area. Get creative and move stuff around. Just because it’s a dresser doesn’t mean it has to be for clothes. Just because it’s a bookcase doesn’t mean you can’t use it for your clothes or shoes in your bedroom. Moral of the story; Breath new life into things you once thought were shit.
