I finished (with some help from Jeff) this chalkboard wall right before (24 hours before) the Open House. This is the side entrance to our kitchen and laundry area. I actually painted three coats of metallic paint under the chalkboard paint but it doesn't have much power. Too bad. I would have loved to have the ability to use magnets. Too bad I didn't take a before. There was a white board. Not too attractive. We can still write notes to each other. Most everyone proclaimed their love recently. Fun.
I love how it turned out!
