Turn any surface into a Magnetic Chalkboard
I recently turned a bare wall in our living room into a magnetic chalkboard. The wall is an odd shape as it is the side to our staircase and we hadn't figured out what to do with it in the 3 years we have been in our house. I am always looking for activities for my kids to do and my oldest son Hunter (2yrs old) has taken an interest in colouring lately. (Sorry I didn't have the pictures for each step)
Step1- Wash the walls surface area where you want to paint
Step 2- Apply the magnetic paint to the wall and let dry over night (repeat the next day for the second coat)
Step 3- Apply the chalkboard paint over the magnetic paint and let dry over night (repeat the next day for the second coat)
Step 4- Put up a border around the chalkboard area (you don't have to do this but I like the way it looks. If you don't want a border I suggest you tape off the area before you paint for a cleaner look)
Step 5- Put up magnets and write on it with chalk!
I also like to use the chalkboard paint on containers to label thing in my kitchen! You can use either paint anywhere in your house.... it's not just for kids!
