Make a statement in your home with an eye-catching blackboard feature wall or detail
Blackboards used to be strictly reserved for the classroom, placed behind a teacher armed with a piece of chalk and a stern expression! Nowadays they have become an object of style, popping up in homes in every way imaginable. Their versatility and changeable appearance has made them increasingly popular, and judging by these pictures we can see why!
Be bold and create a feature wall using chalkboard paint; this will dramatise a room and enhance your décor scheme by contrasting with your chosen palette.
