What an idea – letting kids write on their furniture… I saw this in Better Homes and Garden and I wanted to share this idea with my readers.
You can also paint the dresser first with RustOleum Magnetic latex primer, then paint with the chalkboard paint – now you have a surface that is magnetic AND writable. This idea is great for the young child in your home, or the teenager in the family. Great place to hang those concert tickets or prom tickets for safe keeping.
Let your child be creative, and when they get tired it all they have to do is erase it!
Other DIY idea: Paint a wall in your child’s room with the Chalkboard paint, or paint a space and frame it with molding to create a picture frame look. If you don’t want to paint your walls get a piece of plywood, cut it to the size you want and paint it with the chalkboard paint and frame it and hang it on the wall.
Paint over the magnetic paint with two coats of chalkboard paint to finish.
Give the chalkboard paint three full days to dry and cure. Then rub chalk over the entire painted surface and erase. Let the drawing begin!
Have fun and be creative.
