The write surface

Posted by lea at 4:17 PM
I am utterly in love with chalkboard paint right now. Actually have been for several months, but I hadn't found the right surface to test this new love of mine, until I found this link.

We're currently using a big desk as a dining table that I bought for $10 at a second-hand office furniture sellout with my friend Jenny. Transporting this big table in the back of her small car was no mean feat, and now I can't seem to let it go, so it follows me wherever I move. Now it's about to get a makeover - BIG TIME. It's going to become my very own chalkboard table!! I can't wait! But I have to :( because I won't have enough chalkboard paint for the whole desk until I make another Bunnings trip.

Just imagine - writing ideas and sketching directly onto the table. Drawing place markers for guests at dinnertime. Writing up shopping lists. So much fun! I'd love to turn everything into a chalkboard now - the cupboard doors, random parts of the wall, food containers... the possibilities are endless.

To take things one step further, check this out:

They look like ordinary white walls... but wait! It's actually whiteboard paint!! How awesome is that. But it's quite expensive at the moment, so one thing at a time.

Chalkboard and whiteboard paint are great ways to get creative around the home, and you can mix up and change the artwork with the wipe of a rag and start all over again.

Ugh. Have fun with the chalk dust. Remind me to bring a face mask next time I'm over (assuming that I'm even welcome there any more... hahahaha)

By the way, your comment system is horribly broken and makes it impossible to actually post anything without a deep knowledge of HTML and CSS hacking (and the appropriate tools).

btw... can I have my Dr. Horrible back? :-)

You're always welcome but you won't need a facemask b/c we use (ta da!) DUST FREE LIQUID CHALK!!!

Hmm, I'll try to do something about the comments - thanks for letting me know. I'm sure that's why I don't get many, rather than the fact that noone actually reads my blog :p

And yes, Dr Horrible will soon be on his way back to you (boo hoo).
