  • frogginetteI love it! I have a wall that would be perfect for that but I worry about chalk dust - has that been a problem at all?
  • whip.stitch😂😂Kids have a different sense of time because they spend so little of it cleaning up their own messes. 😳. Chalkboard wall is 😍😍😍
  • sewherenowI love this. This morning my girl was chanting her numbers beautifully 15, 16, 30, 31.. 😂 I think thirty is her default!
  • annoriginal265That sounds just about right for December.
  • madebyrae@frogginette it definitely makes a mess, so I've trained them to put down a couple of old towels on the floor before they draw. Then I pull them up after they are done and toss them in the wash. Still get dust but not so bad!!!
  • madebyrae@charlottesews are you seeing something I'm not?!??! 😂
  • madebyrae@lena____ I used rustoleum; it was the only kind I could find locally. I wish I could have found something low-VOC tho, it really stank for a few days. Also: the chalk erases pretty well but I use a damp microfiber rather than erasers
  • lena____Thank you!
  • charlottesews@madebyrae I have the mind of a 12-year-old 🍆
  • adamwest@charlottesews I thought the same thing 😂😂😂

  • coralbunnyandloWe did this, but it didn't work very well on our textured walls. Also, now I wish I had bought a fun colored Tripp Trapp!- ours is the boring dark chestnut.☺
