Trend Tuesday: Blackboard Paint

Blackboard paint has been around forever, but it's only recently that it's been gaining HUGE popularity in interior design. People are painting entire room's with the stuff, with absolutely beautiful results. It's not just sticking to walls either, but also inspiring designer's to create coaster's, pencil cases (see below) and so much more.

For those in Canada, there is TV program on HGTV Canada called The Style Dept. with the Design Editor of Wish Magazine; she painting an oversize armoire with blackboard paint and the results were absolutely stunning!!!!! I've been searching high and low for a photo, but can't find one anywhere online. If anyone has it, or knows where to find it let me know!!!
