Best Luxurious

This stunning weekly chalkboard is so aesthetically pleasing on the eye, but it is also so very practical. It is nicely split into the days of the week so that you can keep categorise your tasks and appointments even easier. Personally, I find these types of organisation boards get for meal planning, and the notes section great place to create a shopping list for the week ahead. This luxurious board comes with a chunky chalk, tray and hanging rope, so once you receive it, you are ready to go. Due to the size and weight of the product, depending on where you hang the board, it may be a safer option to drill it into the wall instead of using the hanging rope, but that is a personal decision.

Chalk boards vary, some are great with the liquid chalk pens, some write better when using traditional chalk, these are quirks that you may find after purchasing a board yourself. Most of the time a wet wipe or a damp cloth easily removes chalk marks, but after a while it is nice to restore the chalk board to its original colour with a black board cleaner.

As you are now probably aware after reading this blog, purchasing a blackboard is all about bringing creativity into the home, as well as a central place to organise the household. There are many options when it comes down to organising your house, and perhaps the traditional method isn't for you, but we love it. Not only is it an area where you can manage your week but also a place to express emotion and improve your artistic flare by adding character to your kitchen, and those are the reasons we love having one in our home.
