What an awesome idea...

When you live in a small schoolhouse and have 3 little girls, some parts of your house turn into playrooms by default... like this half of our livingroom...

And I do the best I can to keep it looking fun and funky and not too obnoxious. One thing I did was paint the bottom half of one wall with chalkboard paint. It is a hit when we have new guest ("You mean I can write on the wall??") So, imagine my delight when I discovered this...

You can now get chalkboard paint in different colors! I can pretty much make every surface of my house kid friendly. Don't tell Colb, though... he already thinks I am a fanatic... in the 2 houses we have owned I have repainted rooms over 20 times! But variety is the spice of life, right?


  1. I am so painting my whole house with that. Thanks

  2. I was just looking for colored chalkboard paint last night! I'm thinking of painting the door to my basement with it so Jake can play and I can keep kitchen notes on it but I didn't want a black door! Awesome!

    Crayola used to make really brightly colored c.b. paint, but I can't seem to find that anywhere anymore.

  3. ...I love chalkboard paint...try chalkboard paint over two coats of magnetic then have a wall or a door that you can write on and stick magnets to.
