Hints and Hacks: Pretty Functional

Happy Saturday! I hope you’re having a wonderful day filled with friends, family, and lots of sunshine. Thanks for taking the time to complete the poll yesterday – I love getting to hear from you! If you missed it and still want to weigh in, no worries! Just click here.

Today’s post is short and sweet and for those of you who, like me, are always looking for something functional and beautiful. Take a look at some awesome pieces that marry function and gorgeous details using chalkboard and dry erase surfaces below!




I love these fun(ctional) chalkboard pieces for everything from baby showers to weddings to parties to home decor. What’s wonderful about chalkboard is that you can add a coat of chalkboard paint to anything to customize it to your taste and needs, and don’t shy away from colored chalkboard surfaces, too! I love sage green and cool blue for a twist on this decor favorite.


Dry Erase

You may not associate dry erase surfaces with anything but boardrooms, hospital schedules, or schools, but don’t underestimate its wonderful functionality. I love a few quirky shapes and textures (check out the triangle and gold dots!) to add to a photo wall to give you the chance to add a quote you love or some creative space. And don’t forget to consider dry erase surfaces that have metal backing so you can add magnets for even more function!
