Craft room sneak peek - blackboard area

I've been tempted by the idea of using blackboard paint in my home after admiring blackboard walls on many blogs. When I decided a few months back to decorate my craft room, painting this area as a blackboard came to mind.

The little clips were already there before the craft room makeover, but I didn't really use them to their full potential. I think the black background will make a good contrast with items hanging in front of it, so I plan to use this as my inspiration wall and have removed the large pinboard  I previously used for that purpose. It will also make an interesting background for photographing some of my craft projects.

I've also used blackboard paint to paint the fronts of some wooden drawers - I'm looking forward to labelling them so I know exactly what's inside!

I love this!! I used to have a chalkboard wall in my old home and have been looking into new ways to incorporate it into my new space. I opted to use dry erase paint on the wall in front of my desk and while I love it, I still miss the look of a chalkboard. Your new inspiration wall with the the chalkboard paint and little clips is such an awesome space!! I also love the idea of painting the drawers for labeling. You've given me tons of inspiration!

Thanks, Brooke! I can't wait to share more photos when I get some pretty postcards and other things displayed on the little clips, and I'm looking forward to experimenting with different lettering styles on the drawers.
