We didn't have a chalk board in the house so I made one for multiple uses. I got a can of black chalk board paint from Walmart for around $26.00. That gives you a lot of paint, I didn't even use 1/2 the can. This area of the wall was useless so I made it useful. Today's blog I will only talk about the one use, another blog I will show you the other use I have made of this.
It was really easy to do just took some time. All the instructions are on the can and easy to follow. I taped up where I wanted to paint. It does require 2 coats and time between painting those coats. Even once one you need to wait almost a week before you can really use it.
As you can see both my husband and I wrote notes on the board once it was done. We also did come fun drawing with our son. He really likes it.
You could also do this to another part of your wall if you want it just for making family notes. You can paint an old dresser that your little one uses and write on it what is inside that drawer. We plan on doing this soon. We like having this in our kitchen. Even once we are able to redo our old kitchen we may still incorporate the chalk board paint again.
