From House to Home
The chalkboard doesn't clean up perfectly on the walls, especially as we have plaster and not smooth Sheetrock. The chalk gets into the small imperfections in the surface which doesn't come out 100%. I use a big damp sponge and wipe it all down. Usually I'll need to do that twice to remove the white. Then I dry it with a towel. It does stay nice enough to look pretty good but I've been thinking of giving it a refresher coat soon. :)

This link is to a shop on etsy which has really nice chalk boards in frames and also mirrors. There are other shops on Etsy that sell them too. Most of the artisans on Etsy are stay at home moms or people supplementing their income. So nice to support people in the US and some other countries that take pride in what they are doing.

Does the paint magnetize ? Bc I'm having a hard time finding chalkboard paint that does.

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Decorating Kid's Rooms With Chalkboard Paint
This boy is having fun drawing on his walls! The red chair is a fun pop of color next to the chalkboard.
Future creative genius here. Hope nobody ever tells him to stop writing on walls.
5. Make room for creativity and art.Children are naturally creative and expressive. Of course, sometimes this can come out in less-than-ideal ways, such as drawing on the walls, breaking things and generally causing havoc. Take advantage of the positive impulse and make space for healthy expression instead. Some ideas to get you started: • Paint an entire wall or door with chalkboard paint.• Install gymnastics mats in a corner for rough-and-tumble play. • Keep simple art supplies at the ready (with a drop cloth nearby for spills).
