Read the writing on the wall: a boy’s room is a work in progress. Modular and staged furniture keeps up with the physical changes, but chalkboard decals provide a different kind of possibility. They can be used for notes, writing practice, or sprawling art projects. Cleaning them is a simple matter of wiping them with a dry or damp cloth (avoid household cleaners to prevent a colorful mess). Remove and reuse chalkboard decals as you see fit.
You’ll find decals from WallCandy and York Wallcoverings in the Modern Kids Specialty Shop. The designs forgo schoolhouse charm for more meaningful themes like dinosaurs, flying saucers, and skater silhouettes.
