Trend Alert: Chalkboards

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. For more on the chalkboard trend, just click on the photos below.

The chalkboard paint is cool at first, but after a while you just end up with a black wall that has smeared phrases on it.

I want my whole door to be a chalkboard. It would make me feel like a kid again and I could change it whenever I want.

Cute but I had that you have to clean it all the time when you erase something because of the leftover residue.

As practical as the clackboard thing seems, it just always ends up being dusty and dirty. I was originally a fan of this stuff, but now, not soo much.

What a great idea! I'm creating these since no matter how many times I tell her, my MIL always uses my recycle bin as a trash can!

I like the idea of the paint. I saw it in a room makeover but they ruined it by covering most of it with a tackboard.
