Need a quick change for a kid’s room? Try painting the back of a door with chalkboard paint for hours and years of entertainment! I used Rust-oleum black (also available in green) Chalk Board paint. The paint is available at most home improvement or hardware stores for less than $5.00! I painted 3 doors and still have 1/4 of a can remaining. It takes about 2 coats and dries quickly.
At the ages of 6, 3, and 2, it is a source of constant playtime! Plus, I can see teenagers using the board to write notes, poems, phone numbers, or friends leaving messages. Hey, I can even envision myself writing a huge “CLEAN YOUR ROOM!” message in the coming years. The third door is in our bar/entertainment area. Everyone from kids to our adult friends, love to draw pictures, scribble messages, or leave the “Joe was here” line.
In my daughter’s room, I used some thin rope and tied together a few pieces of sidewalk chalk. Then I hung the chalk bundle from the door knob. No loose chalk rolling around or getting smashed. Have fun!
