I love this chalkboard wall - it adds a lot of life and gives the room a personalized feel. It would also be great in a kitchen, especially when you need to jot down grocery and ingredient lists. Image from apartmenttherapy.com

I love the idea of easily changing up the decor in my apartment, and I've been looking for creative ways to do so without buying new art or dragging furniture around my living room. When searching for some inspiration, the possibility of customizable pieces came to mind, and I instantly thought of chalkboard paint and all the choice and change it offers. Martha has several great chalkboard options in her lines with Michael's and Staples, but I thought I'd pull together a few additional chalkboard pieces from around the web to feed my current obsession and, hopefully, inspire! Check out my picks below.
