    Love the wall calendar!

    My partner actually just recently painted one of the walls in our house in chalkboard paint for poetry, lists, drawings – anything really! It’s really cool!

    If anyone wants to get creative you can actually buy the paint at Bunnings!

    Off the calendar link have found chalkboard ink pens…add to cart…

      I love chalkboard paint! You could so easily DIY some of these ideas as well. I haven’t gone as far as a whole wall (major envy) but I made myself a book stand with a chalkboard face to use for recipes, notes etc.

    I am jealous of the chalkboard wall too! I wanted to do one in our apartment… but apparently dark colours make small spaces look smaller… damn! x

    I’m buying the chalkboard candle as we speak..
