So we had to do two or three coats of magnetic paint and then I think two or three more cans of chalkboard paint. At $10 a can I think this wall cost around $100. I painted the wall to match the rest of the house so even though you can’t tell it is actually chocolate brown. I believe there is about 12 different colors you can choose from.
I love that the kids can draw and create and practice writing. What I don’t love is that I can’t get the darn thing clean. As you can see above in my picture it has chalk all over it. 😦 So if anyone has any ideas for me I would appreciate it.
Now blue and purple chalk show up best on my wall especially if you want to see it from far away. Below is a picture from our we choose virtues curriculum. I write the verse and the virtue on the wall so the kids can see it. My daughter often goes up there and copies what I wrote. It is great for vocab words, math practice etc… Now I don’t really use the magnet feature too often. But next year when I use the All about spelling and reading levels 1 and 2 with my girls I will definitely be using it, since I don’t have any white boards at the moment.
So that’s it for my chalkboard wall. Hope you enjoyed my tiny post. My next post I’ll share my homeschool closet.
