I'd love to do a chalkboard wall for my daughters room, but she's unsure of how it would look against an all white rooms with a few color accents. Any advice? also does it get dusty or dirty? Thanks for any feedback!

I love the chalkboard look but think actual chalk is gross (too dusty!) so I found a chalk-like marker at Hobby Lobby that I used to make a "tea menu" for our kitchen. I have been wondering how a chalkboard floor would work if I were to use the pen on it. I am considering painting our basement floor with chalkboard paint but am concerned that it would highlight footprints and dust. It seems like a fun idea to me but I'm not sure how practical it is to have chalkboard floor/steps. Any thoughts or advice?

If you guys think Chalkboard paint is cool you should really check out Writeyboard Clear whiteboard paint. Way cooler and not as messy. It's a clear coat so you can literally have any color you want.
