Blackboard Wall (and more animation)

I've been busy redecorating Nelly's room over the past week.  I've painted one of her walls entirely in blackboard paint (which was quite nervewracking - I kept having visions of Adrian Mole's attempt).

But it looks brilliant!  It turns out that everything looks good against a black wall.  Even really ordinary things like chairs and wall lights suddenly look very cool.

And then the best part was letting the girls loose on it with a box of chalks...


P.S. If you haven't already seen it (it's been around for a while) THIS is a beautiful blackboard animation.

  1. Brilliant! I love the picture your girls created, and that the bear had to be brought in - was it him saying Aaaargh?! (I think that's what it says...or it may be mountains?!)
