Staring at the blank wall in my dining room has been driving me mad for the last two months. My husband and I have been going back and forth on design options between here and the living room.
Since when did the husbands have a say-so on interior decorating? We need a garage; That way he won't impede my vision. Just kidding. Sort-of.
Back to the wall. It is large, plain, and empty. I can't have that...so while the kids napped, I decided to paint it with magnatic and chalkboard paint.
And yes, I finished painting the entire wall in just two hours. What can I say? My husband and I make a great team.
I only painted half the wall with the magnetic paint for the kids. Then, I painted over everything with the chalkboard paint.
My overall vision for this area is to add a desk to it, which my husband plans on building (hopefully) soon.
But until he can get around to building it, he figured he would give you a visual...
Rustoleum Magnetic Primer
Valspar Chalkboard Paint
To be honest with you, if I could go back and do this again, I would ditch the magnetic primer. It doesn't work very well AND it left my wall feeling gritty-- making it harder to write on that side of the wall.
But hey, that's just my opinion.
