So I discussed it with my husband and told me -no way, he didn't think it was a good idea blah blah blah. So I took another couple of weeks to think about and take his thoughts into consideration and then did what typically happens when he opposes a decision about the house - I waited till he was away for the day at the races and went ahead and did it anyway..
My biggest concern was taping out the area- I cannot draw a straight line to save myself, but I got the spirit level out and I was surprised how well it went ! Then it was three coats of magnetic primer and the following day a coat of chalk board paint... I am really happy with how it turned out and I think I will draw little boxes and a calender each month to try and whip this family into some sort of organisation..
Sorry about the fuzzy pin board photo- it is now on the floor waiting for a new home so I couldn't take it again..
The only complaint I would have is the magnetic hold is not particularly good- I am going to have to go on the hunt for some groovy magnets and I recently came across these chalkboard pencils on etsy which I think I will order..
Once again we are housebound again with my littlest boy sick again this time with a nasty ear infection - bring on some warm weather, its so hard to see him sick and miserable all the time..
Bye for now ,
