My chalk board needed a makeover, I have found using standard chalks quite hard to use so set about finding alternatives to write with.
These Zig Posterman chalk pens are excellent to use
The pens do take a while to get used to, especially the wide nib one, and the whole board took me quite a while to do, with quite a bit of arm ache!
My board also contains my metal card holder to display some favourite cards which I change over from time to time.
I'm sure the chalk art will be changed occasionally, maybe to go with the different seasons, maybe when my arm stops aching.
