Blackboards, chalkboards, whatever you want to call them - I have a thing for them.
I have a world globe that has been repurposed and painted with chalkboard paint, so now I can draw the countries in wherever I want. I also have a gorgeous black scroll chalkboard from Revived Vintage.
Revived Vintage is a lovely store run by Amy Weaver. She revives old vintage frames and transforms them into amazing chalkboards. My black one is a statement piece in our home, everyone comments about it. She has also started carrying vintage replicas because of the high demand for her pieces, and I can see why everyone is so eager to get one of her chalkboards - they truly are beautiful.
Amy's favorite color is white. It's the most prominent color in her home, and she even painted her children white for fun one day, hehehe. Her style is definitely Shabby Chic, and has reupholstered a lot of her furniture to give it that lovely feminine feel. From her home, Amy has been able to successfully quit a job in the medical field to sell her frames online full time.
Amy is giving one lucky reader their color choice of a Hollywood Regency Chalkboard! To enter, leave a comment here telling me what you'd do with the chalkboard if you won and what color you'd like it in (see the color selection here). I will announce the winner next week.
(PS. The winner of the Eclu giveaway is Kari. Congrats!)
