Lovin' this chalkboard effect! My love affair with chalkboards began long ago when my dad hung one in our garage. School was in session! Our entire basement was also fair game for chalk as we outlined games on the floor and wrote messages on the walls. My mother worked in a hospital and sometimes worked a few hours over the weekend. I'd tag along and "work" in an adjoining classroom where there was a fabulous chalkboard with big fat white chalk. Standing alongside that board was a real skeleton, all labeled and wired together. He was a well behaved student but had trouble holding the chalk so I had to guide his hand when he wrote. Sometimes I think back and wonder who that guy was in real life. He probably never thought he would live on to educate nurses and play school with a 7 year old on Saturday mornings!
