Chalkboards are no longer just for the classroom – time to bring one home!

Chalkboards have been the "it" trend for a while and it doesn't look like this trend is going to fade out anytime soon.

Scribble down those grocery lists and busy schedules on a large custom chalkboard placed right in the heart of your kitchen. Or maybe you have a beautiful antique cypress table that hosts all the dinner parties? Accessorize your dining room with a custom chalkboard, and doodle a cute quote or blessing to make your guests feel extra loved! Have another idea? The options are limitless!

So, what makes our chalkboards unique?

Glad you asked!

The guys here at The Corbel make our beautiful chalkboards using antique windows, reclaimed cypress and colorful bead board. Character and functionality all in one piece! And of course, we make them in all sizes. The above picture is of our large (8'x10') custom chalkboard you can find hanging in our very own warehouse!

We also have some other unique chalkboard items in the store. Take a look at some of the sweet ways you can bring chalk home!
