Staring At A Blank Wall

Liz LuscombComment
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.

Sigh.  

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...



How nice of him.

Products used:
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.
