I don't think that this would ever go in my house. You know, I'm not reall big on chalkboards (unless they're large and have squares drawn all over them for no reason -- movie, anyone?). However, this reminds me of Jonah and the Whale and subsequently, it makes me happy.
Painted wooden chalkboard. Comes with one piece of chalk & measures 15.25" x 7.25". Has two pre-drilled holes in back for mounting.
