Hair Salon Chalkboard Wall – Let Em Have It Salon – Denver, CO
Denver’s ‘Let Em Have It’ Salon wanted to refresh the wall that greets customers from behind the reception counter. Together, we worked to create a chalkboard wall to announce both events and specials.
I worked up some design ideas on paper that played off of the inspiration for their name…a World War II US poster that urged the Navy to well, ‘Let Em Have It’…as well as the overall style of the salon. Their style is a little industrial, but with a living greenery wall, along with other touches like original art. A cool and eclectic mix, for sure.
The old wall was prepped by sanding it down to remove bumps and texture…then re-coated with my favorite surface…Benjamin Moore chalkboard base tinted black. BTW- Don’t let them tell you that their premixed black is actually black…it’s a dark gray. They may look at you funny when you ask them to mix this up, but will be surprised by the outcome.
The design was then finished up and ‘installed’ on-site.
