Chalkboard Paint

The other day I found half a can of chalkboard paint in my paint stash in the basement. I think my friend, Sarah, gave it to me last year when they moved and I forgot about it. What an exciting find! I immediately started prowling around the house, looking for some unsuspecting surface... and decided on my pantry doors.

Andrew sanding them for me

Me painting

All finished!

Stuff I read said that to properly prepare the surface for being erased, I should color with the edge of a big piece of chalk over the whole thing and then wipe it off

Finished project! =)

I've never heard of chalkboard paint before. We used magnetic paint in Isaac's room, but oh the possibilities of chalkboard paint! It looks so fun!

p.s. And loved the cars sticker on your hand too when you were priming the door with chalk...
