    A friend in college had a wall where everyone could write on it. It was so fun to read funny comments and remember what they were from. I’m definitely painting a wall with chalkboard paint in my next apartment.

    This is a great way to document the morning after. I love these photos. I have chalkboard stickers on two cupboards and I find there just isn’t enough room!

    I love it! Looks so dressed up like that. Or actually dressed down, but in a fun casual way.

    We have black walls in our guest bathroom (not chalkboard paint) and had a little mishap with it last Halloween when our friends drew all over it with chalk. It was my fault, I left a piece of chalk laying around. It took a good 3 washes to get off all the party graffiti. Totally worth it though cause the photos were hilarious.

    Someone clearly awesome was quoting The National. “I’m a festival. I’m a parade.”

  19. Alexa says:

    Oh that’s awesome. And you can remember things that you perhaps might not have. ;)

    I admire your boldness at having a black wall. It is stunning.

    Won’t it hurt a little to finally wash away all those inscriptions?

  21. Jen says:

    Happy New Year, friend. Thanks for being such an awesome lady! xo

  22. That is the best way to remember a fabulous New Year’s Eve and the great people you shared it with! Could be a little risky too but looks like your friends held it together…at least from what we see ;) Happy New Year!

  23. Looks like a fun party! I have a massive chalkboard canvas on the wall- you’ve reminded me that it needs updating!
