CHALKBOARD PAINT can be easily bought at a craft or home improvement store and can really help put that special fun "icing" on your home decor or event... (don't forget to look under the first wine post for another chalkboard paint idea!)

Fun chalkboard paint covered candles - I am not sure I would do the time on them, but using inspirational or theme related words would be very cute and again, VERY inexpensive! If you want to cheat, go to the source of the pic, though they are $20! Source
If you really want to add some unique "icing" to a home office or family resource wall... how fun is this!?!? It would take some patience to tape off all the squares and mix up a few different shades of chalkboard paint, but the look is FANTASTIC! Sure beats a free sales calendar thumbtacked to the wall!
