I have been wanting a fancy chalk board for awhile...
You know the kind you hang and write quotes or holiday greetings on!
I found a old picture at a consignment store and loved the frame...
I want black so with a little work it went from ugly to exactly what I wanted....
At first we used basic chalk...It was messy
Plus I'm a lefty and I'd smear as I wrote!
I did some research and found chalk board markers!
Yay! I was so excited!
Grabbed my coupon for 40% and headed to JoAnn Fabric!
I bought the Marvy Bistro Chalk Marker set
This what it looks like....
I forgot to take a before picture!
This is what it looked like after I tried to remove my Christmas greeting!
I used Dawn dish soap, still nothing!
I finally used a Mr. Clean Magic eraser and it's better
It did take off some of the paint
I will probably repaint in the near future!
I've since done some more research and supposedly these markers work great
on vinyl chalk boards or high gloss boards!
I'm bummed because I also painted the inside of my pantry so I can post my weekly menu
So I'm back to messy chalk!
