Painting a Chalkboard Wall

July 29, 2014 by 6 Comments

I’ve started the stripes, thanks so much for helping me pick a fun striped pattern for the hallway, it was hard to decide because I loved all five styles!!!  Little B has been begging me to add a Chalkboard Wall to her room.  She already has a cute chalkboard in her room so I hesitated getting another.   As I started to look at her bathroom I found a wall that was not huge, and was tucked out of the way.  And so I started taping with Duck Tape — love that stuff.

I love that a few minutes of prep work saves so much time (unsponsored).  The pic below was taken after one coat of paint.  I ended up adding  three coats

If this had been in the kitchen rather than behind a bathroom door, I probably would have sanded down some of the texture, but for Little B’s room all the dust that would have created (when we already have a MESS of a kitchen) I went with what we had in here.

The Frog Tape pulled away from the wall seamlessly (unlike the yellow masking tape the kitchen crew used to attach the sheets of plastic to the ceiling – my kitchen has way too many unfinished projects already!

After 24 hours of dry time (I couldn’t wait the recommended three days) I used the side of my chalk to rub chalk over the entire surface, allowed it to stay on for a few moments, and then erased it.  And then my wall was ready!!!  Chalkboard paint can be used on glass, cabinets, mirrors, clay pots, wood, and other accessories throughout your home!

My Chalkboard Pen dried up so I need to order another and then I plan on doing something similar to this super cute chalkboard art up high and leave lots of doodle room for Little B below!
