Chalkboard design statement

A beautiful focal point for your home

Greet your guests in style with a chalkboard that you’ve decorated with a welcome greeting, or simply use the chalkboard as a home accessory. It can be given a completely new look to match the season, the occasion or the atmosphere you want to create.  You can do this in no time at all with the help of edding chalk markers. What’s more, you can erase your design at any time with a quick wipe of a damp cloth, ready for you to come up with  a brand new quote or message. There’s a range of vibrant, opaque colours to choose from; we went for white to suit our winter theme. Our message could be seen as an omen that the first snow of the season is on its way! Once decorated, your chalkboard will turn heads and make an attractive feature for your home. As a decoration for the top of our board, we hung a small seasonal wreath made from twigs, tied together with wire.
