What does it say? - is the writing in English?

Yes the writing is in English. They are quotes from different artists, I hand wrote them on the chalk board paint wall. In a sense it was a mini art installation. "I think of my pictures as dramas; the shapes in the pictures are the performers", Mark Rothko. That was a favorite.....

Where do I buy the chalkboards?

You do not have to buy chalkboards to do this. Use chalkboard paint on the wall and trim it out with the framing material of your choice. Chalkboard paint is sold at most hardware stores or online, where it comes in lots of colors. A very fun project.

Yes that is correct. I used chalk board paint from Benjamin Moore paints. You have to do two coats and 48 hours in-between each coat. The framing that appears to be framing in picture is actually part of the architecture in the room, meaning it was there!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to 11 Ways to Give Your Home Schoolhouse Charm
A chalkboard wall makes a surprise appearance in this casual dining room. Scribble a note to welcome dinner guests and give them a hint about what's on tonight's menu.
Lily Gahagan added this to Grown-Up Ideas for Chalkboard Paint
Highlight architectural elements with a coat or two of paint. Scrawl a message if you like, or leave it blank.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Candles Warm the Winter Home
If you already have a light fixture above your table, consider lining your sideboard or buffet table with groups of candles. If you place a mirror behind them, you can double the soft glow dancing around the room.
Chalkboard paint encircles this dining room, creating a blank canvas that can be changed periodically. Raised wainscoting adds height to the space.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Chalk It Up
If you like to frequently change the décor in your home, you might consider painting a chalkboard border. This chalkboard wraps around a dining room between paneling and a lovely coved ceiling; it's the perfect canvas for beautiful script.
Shane D. Inman added this to Designer's Touch: 10 Divine Dining Rooms
7. Get all chalked up. Entertain guests with menus or daily inspirational quotes for the family — right on the walls. Cleanup is easy, and it's a fun way to have a different look every day. Now that is cool.
Amy Renea added this to Small Details Make a Big Statement
Take a look around your house today, and instead of thinking about the carpet that needs replacing or the French doors you'd like for your bedroom, think about the little things. Could you replace drawer pulls on your dresser and change the look of the room? Could you add pops of red to your kitchen for a fresh appearance? And what do your house numbers say about you?More:The Right Hardware: Jewelry For Your Home
Becky Harris added this to The Best Chalkboard Wall Art on Houzz
I’ve always liked the way the handwriting looks around this dining room. It’s consistent and nice. However, I cannot make out what it says, so I should probably put in a disclaimer saying I don’t necessarily support its message, just in case it’s some sort of wackadoo manifesto.
Alison Hodgson added this to 6 Ways to Beat the Winter Blahs
6. Light a candle or two, or 12. For me the lack of light is the hardest aspect of winter. Not much can change that during the day, but there can be a loveliness in the long nights. Candlelight brings beauty to the darkness.I remember to light candles around the holidays, but too often they all get put away in the Christmas cleanup. I have LED candles to place in my windows but never got around to setting them up this year. I purposely didn’t pack them up this year and am going to put them out now. And I think I’m going to take a look at other decorating I usually do long before Christmas, and reconsider what I may save for later in the season and even after the holidays.

Gradation is seen in this photo due to the candles. The candles in this photo show gradation because there is a sense of level change. Gradation is the gradual increase or decrease of similar elements of design. In these candles we see level changes because multiple sizes of candles are being used, and we see the gradual decrease in size.
