It's back-to-school season, and even if you haven't been a student in ages, now is the ideal time to get out the chalk. From chalkboard paint to write-on vases, chalk-worthy surfaces are showing up on all sorts of home accents for both kids' rooms and adult decor.
Not only do I love the retro schoolhouse vibe of these products, but they are also a practical way to write yourself reminders, label (and re-label) boxes, or just keep the kids occupied. And while some of the chalkboard surfaces I've found are clearly toys, others — including this VivaTerra Barn Wood and Chalkboard Bin — just have a youthful spirit.
