On a whim last week, I painted a small wall in our kitchen with black chalkboard paint.
The kids absolutely loved it.
I mean, how cool is it when your mom lets you color on the wall!?
And I liked it too…
Then reality set in.
If you’re a type A personality like me and like things just so,
you’ll see what I mean…
After the kids were done with their ‘art’ and the wall was scrubbed clean,
it never really looked clean.
I’m not sure if it’s because the wall is textured or what,
but it just ended up looking messy no matter how much I cleaned it.
It drove me nuts.
And see the baseboard?
Here’s a closer look…
Chalk dust all over the baseboard and floor.
After living with the wall like this for a week, I decided I’d had enough.
I mean, do I really need one more thing to keep clean?
So today I painted back over it,
and now we’re back to a plain ol’ vanilla wall
(which will hopefully be getting some color soon!).
It’s really a shame because chalk board walls can be so dang cute!
