(Old photo from my files. I painted chalkboards out of old picture frames
for our grandchildren. They still love drawing on these!)Please tell me you've painted with chalkboard paint as least one ti
me! If not, go buy a small can (not spray) and give it a try. Before long you'll be painting walls! Think of a section of wall in your child's room, then tape it off and paint it with chalkboard paint. You should paint on at least 2 coats, letting each coat dry completely before you add the next. Look for colorful chalk for your child to use. I think YOU will be the one writing and drawing art on the chalkboard.
For Jessica's wedding I painted one inside wall of the little barn that we used for the candy bar and gift table area. I loved this wall at the end of the night, so many sweet things were written, some funny things too!
(...how about the "tuck each other in at night"...so sweet!)
Most of this is still on the wall, after 5 months!
(Nathan and Thuy are getting married this April!)
Painting with chalkboard paint is one of my most favorite activities. How about you?
