Our trip to Omaha last month took us to a cupcake store, because I don' t pass a cupcake store without trying it. I'm not only an expert in decor, but cupcakes as well. These were quite good. The decor was adorable and the chalkboard stripe was fun. So today, I'm inspired to bring chalk boards into your decor. My last house had an entire wall done in black chalk board paint in the office. The only problem with it, for me, was that it didn't clean up to it's original beauty very easily. We ended up painting it again to give a fresh look after a couple of years. Now my mom, a bit of clean freak, will tell you the chalk dust makes this project prohibitive but I live on the edge. And as an extra bonus black is back. The color and the concept work! So enjoy these inspirational pics. Happy Monday!
