I am determined to stick a chalkboard wall somewhere in my house. We had one while living in Manhattan and Mike claimed we never used it (so?! functional isn't always the point!!) I want to put one in our kitchen nook, the jury is still out on whether or not I will actually win that argument but this is one idea I love...putting it in the bedroom. You can leave little love notes for your spouse, or "honey-do" lists...in any case, it's genius.
