Writing on the Walls

Mo Willems, he of Pigeon and Knuffle Bunny and Elephant & Piggie fame (and Georgia's favorite author), has posted a few photos to his blog of a recent bit of home renovation, and it's such a genius idea I don't know why I haven't seen it before.
The cheapest and most fun renovation to our new house was painting the dining room with chalk board paint (available at any hardware store). Now, when guests come over they can sign in, doodle, or complete complex mathematical computations.
Check it out.

I suddenly have the burning desire to paint a room in my house...

Oh my gosh, that is the greatest idea ever. BTW Mo Willems was at Comic Con, my co-worker got his autograph on his kid's copy of Pigeon Wants a Hot Dog or whatever it's called.
He was here in Austin a few weeks ago promoting Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed, and Georgia got to meet him and get several of her favorite books signed. Of course, she was so shy that she hid behind me the whole time and wouldn't make eye contact with him, but what can you do?
You'd get a lot of chalk dust though, I expect.
Well, sure, but chalk dust builds character!
