{New House - Blackboard Wall}

So I have previously talked about my wish to create a blackboard wall in my kitchen, and I've finally gotten around to finishing it!

I'm really pleased with the end result. I was initially disappointed with it's lack of magnetism, but I've managed to get some round magnets from Sainsburys that seem to work. Thank you to Heather (H34TH3RM4C) over on Instagram for the tip!

This is the paint I used which I purchased at HomeBase

First coat done!

I ended up doing 4 coats in total, and I needed two tins of paint at £14.99 each

This is me apparently!!

I invested in a liquid chalk pen and it's amazing!!! Has made a massive difference in comparison to basic chalk that the kids use.

  2. I love this idea of this, but I think I'd be too anal about it and the whole house would end up argueing lol x

  3. This is so awesome. I wanted to do a wall in our house for the kids. I have never heard of liquid chalk paint pens. Those look way better than basic chalk. You did a great job and have inspired me. Now I just have to pick a wall to do the same. Shame the magnetic part does work as good as it supposed to. Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me #sharewithme
