Target: Nate Berkus Chalkboard | $10
Marshall's/ Home Goods/TJ Maxx
Naturally I'm going to recommend these stores, as they are my favorite place to shop. I love when people come to our house and keep saying "OMG where'd you get this?" "Home Goods. Home Goods. Marshalls. Home Goods." I could go there every day. The one problem is that if you are looking for something very specific, you may not find it. Be diligent and go often and just keep your eyes peeled, maybe you'll stumble upon the perfect one at a great price.
You can always paint a section of a wall or an entire wall for dramatic effect, using chalk paint from your local Home Depot or Lowes.
Stay tuned for part two of this chalkboard lettering series, where I'll talk about the best tools for writing on your chalkboard!
