I saved quite a few images to my computer around this time last year (it may have even been in 2007) of rooms that featured chalkboards or chalkboard paint. I never got around to writing that post, but upon seeing this room by Benjamin Dhong, I thought I owed it to the chalkboards to do a little post. Most of the rooms I had intended to feature used the chalkboards or chalkboard paint in a pretty practical way, i.e. refrigerator doors, kitchens, playrooms, etc. which is why I love the complete contrast of Dhong’s choice. Instead of looking for practicality, he turned to art featuring the Empire State Building. Medium of choice? Chalk on blackboard. The result is completely cool.
