Art for All

Little ones are going to draw on the walls anyway—chalkboard paint provides a strategically placed space for them to dream in color.

However, kids shouldn’t be the only ones to get in touch with their inner artists.

Empty decorative frames open an invitation for guests to fill in doodles, anecdotes, or words of inspiration–all with artistic flourish.
