The Chalkboard Office Accessories from CB2 are just so much fun. You can write, draw or doodle on the office products. How cool is that? You can get pencil/pen holder, storage boxes and magazine holder with painted chalkboard surface. Once you get too bored with your messages, labels or to-dos, just wipe them off with a soft dry cloth. So fun eh? When you buy either one of the products, you will get one piece of chalk included. Oh, I cannot wait to get a few of the storage boxes for my scanning software and knick-knacks.
