I'm one of those people who just wasn't into the Chalkboard Fad
that's been going around blogland for all the time I've been here and sincerely
didn't ever want to make a chalkboard framed or chalkboard signs or
specifically...never a chalkboard wall!
But, as I mentioned previously, I was at my daughter Alana's place in Toronto
last week and following an afternoon out and about the city, we
retired to her two-story apartment in the Beaches and proceeded to
open a bottle of red wine together.  After a couple glasses, we decided to go upstairs
and check out her chalkboard wall!
Well, one thing lead to another and both us being a little off...(in a good way), I started to
draw a very large tree on her wall...
It just progressed from there and Alana got involved, after grabbing her camera!
We even put veins in the leaves on the tree!
Then Alana took over the last portion of the tree and I took over the camera!
    And seriously....check out the awesome headboard Alana & Mark drew on the wall
with a projector...it's become a wee bit smudged from overnight guests...but still looks
so crazy cool!  Can you imagine putting a chalkboard wall in your child's room?!
Would you paint chalkpaint on your child's bedroom wall?
I would now!
How much fun could you have drawing and imagining different
scenes and characters and changing up the headboard whenever the mood hit you?!
I'm now trying to get everyone I know with kids to try this....ehemmm....
because my 30yr old daughter and her 32yr old hubby did and they don't have kids!  Hahaha!

I totally love this idea! If you don't want a black wall, you can use the coloured chalkboard paint.

I didn't even know there was "coloured" chalkboard paint! How great is that?! xo

Wow Wendy, that looks awesome!! I live in a condo so don't have the luxury of being able to paint my walls any color I want, but after seeing this post, I definitely would paint one of the walls in the girls' room with chalkpaint. I'm glad to see that chalkboard finally won you over;P Pinning this wonderful idea! Thanks for sharing!

My daughter is in a rental too (shhhh....) but figures she can just paint over it if and when she leaves it ever. Thanks for pinning! xo
