What kid wouldn't love his or her own teepee! Striking and bright colors create a lively environment for this fort-among-forts. Benches double as tables and pillows also work as seats. Kids have easy access to books on a nearby shelf, keeping them organized and not underfoot. A door covered with erasable chalkboard paint provides space for drawing over and over again.
By cutting the center of the cabinet door fronts out with a jigsaw, painting the back panel fire engine red, then inserting chicken wire as decorative detail, the designer added both extra storage space and a high-energy focal point in this bathroom. Chalkboard-painted walls provide a perfect way to leave notes for guests.
Your child can pretend to be a mountaineer in this playroom painted with peaks and valleys.

This space is filled with unique custom pieces, from the corrugated metal ceiling to the suspended industrial lighting to the sliding barn doors coated in chalkboard paint.

Chalkboard paint on the reclaimed wood doors is a fun and functional touch.
In this mudroom from Tanya Collins Design, an antique pine armoire, painted teal, boosts storage and creates a focal point that enlivens the otherwise neutral scheme.

A framed chalkboard-paint wall serves as a central spot for memos and messages.
Variegated hardwood complements the lines of a glass-tile backsplash in this modern warehouse turned living space. The horizontal lines continue in the stair rails and the supports for a set of cool, industrial-style doors. Chalkboard paint and a mod pendant above the breakfast bar add character and a touch of whimsy.
Exposed wood walls lend a rustic quality to this Colorado mountain retreat. A cozy seating area next to the kitchen is centered around an open fireplace.
