I always wanted a chalk board or wall in my house. When I still owned a gift shop, I had a framed chalk board in the display window with a new quote or silly saying each week. I loved noticing how it caused passers-by to stop, read and either have a giggle or made them think. One of my favourites was by Albert Einstein: “The laws of gravity cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.” I had numerous, deep questions about this quote = )
In their own words: ”Cotton Candi creates pretty useful things for all ages”. We are living in an age where chalk board paint isn’t restricted to the army green or black or used in class rooms only. It has become a medium of different colors and applied in playrooms, kitchens or even the inside of cupboards – which is, in my opinion very clever! This has however not remained a medium for walls only.

The paint is easy to use and are available in standard colors, but can also be ordered in any color. I really like the fact that they sell the paint in small quantities, so no need to paint all surfaces in one color!

about the author
If it is different, made with love and contains Italian parsley or rosemary, I love it! I'm inspired by my daughter, born Sept 2010, a good latte served with a pretty piece of cake or even better: a carrot and cream cheese-centered muffin. I live by the motto "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day". May you be inspired to live a lovilee life! -
