DIY chalkboard wall...and other stuff!

this has been chalkboard paint week around here! if you have an ugly bit of wall, (see above pic for my example of an ugly bit of wall)....paint it with chalkboard paint!
i first primed the ugly cabnit/wall thingy with magnetized paint so the kiddos could have magnet as well as chalk fun...the magnet paint took lots of coats and the magnet power is pretty big deal to have just chalk fun minus the magnet fun....
next step, roll the chalkbaord paint on for a smooth finish, wait 72 hours (we cheated by about 48 hours and all seems well, but we are very risky people that way...we really live on the edge around here)
then get ready for crazy chalkboard fun!
i got a little overzealous with the paint and painted an empty honeybear...kind of goth-sweet, wouldn't you say?

  1. I *heart* your chalkboard wall. Is that the paint Miss Sassy spilled in the store? Todd thought that story was pretty funny.
