Chalkboards are very popular in decor as they allow you to leave messages, pictures, pictures and other things. They are interactive and create a dialogue. Blackboard is not only intended for classrooms or offices, you can find blackboard surfaces everywhere: in children’s rooms, in hallways, very practical and easy-care blackboard back walls, clay pots and planters, entire walls to encourage children’s creativity, and headboards leave each other messages of love. Blackboard walls in the kitchen and dining room allow you to leave a menu or shopping lists. In the bedroom, you can leave messages to your partner saying good morning. Blackboard tables inspire children’s creativity and blackboard snack tables allow you to write the names of dishes right on them. Of course, you can buy all of these pieces of furniture or buy some blackboard paint and create your own personal decor. Another idea is to quickly do some chalkboard paint at home. This is budget friendly and you can make your own special hues and colors, not just classic black. There are several ways to mix blackboard colors. So read these tutorials to build some.

Plaster of paris mixed with latex paint can make perfect blackboard paint. Test your color on something to see if you are happy with the consistency. This mixture worked fine for me, but if it feels too thick just add some water or even paint.

We just shared some cool wall wall basket ideas and today I want to share some more cool wall decor ideas and these are plates. Decorative plates have even more potential than baskets because they are usually painted and you can use them to create different combinations. They can be arranged symmetrically or asymmetrically, on one wall or on two that come from one to the other. If you think plates will only fit in a kitchen or dining room, you are mistaken. Decorative plates can be a good idea for almost any room. Let's look at that.
Kitchens and dining areas
Plates are very traditional for kitchens and dining areas for a reason - these are plates. Above the dining area or on a kitchen wall, you can rock mismatched vintage or floral patterns. Various colorful plates are sure to make a statement on a neutral or dark wall. The colors can correspond to the color scheme of the kitchen or the mismatch. If you want a modern look on a wall of plates, cut the plates very clearly and take them in matching colors, it will be a great decoration!
Other rooms can include living rooms, entry areas, and even bedrooms. Flowery and matching plates, also in different sizes, give a vintage or an elegant feel. Colorful hand-painted and mismatched are for a modern or eclectic space. In fact, plates can be arranged for any living style, from boho to minimalist. The point is how you rock the colors and sizes. Get inspired!
