Very nice, but a slate surface would be best
February 20, 2014
"This is a very nice and beautiful board. Excellent for Valentine's day where you might want something romantic yet practical and fun. (So perhaps best for married folks.) ;)
Do note that the front is not slate or a slate equivalent like a traditional chalkboard. I probably would have figured that out had I read closer, but I would have preferred slate.
The front appears to just be a semi-glossy pain that takes chalk. It doesn't allow you to write as cleanly as a traditional chalkboard, but it does still work.
If you are a chalk artist and want to do fine detail in your writing or pictures/doodles I'm not sure you would like this surface.
All in all a successful Valentine's gift. :)"
