I'm still in love with chalkboards in bedrooms. I have one in my son's room and a small one next to the bed of our youngest. I love that they can be art and function. In our son's room there is a space/robot theme going on currently so the chalkboard has a huge robot drawn on it. For our youngest, the chalkboard by her bed is a place to remind her of the memorization items she's working on. Lately it's been multiplication tables, many times it's spelling words. The possibilities are endless.
