    No Commitment Chalkboard Wall DIY

    Shared Art Room & Office Space | Oh Lovely Day

    Long before I created our full-sized chalkboard wall, I dreamed of a chalkboard wall. But I’m a renter. And using black chalkboard paint to cover one giant wall is not very landlord friendly. I was also a little afraid of the dust that the chalk would create. But then I collaborated with The Land of Nod to create a shared art room and office space and I revisited the idea of the chalkboard wall. After a lot of brainstorming and research I found a great solution for creating a full-sized chalkboard wall with little to no commitment: chalkboard contact paper!

    As you can see, Charlie loves it, and spends a lot of time at his chalkboard. He usually doesn’t erase until he’s completed a “scene” on the entire board, so I only have to do a dust clean-up once every week or two instead of constantly. And it took me 30 minutes and around $30 to make, and I can remove it super easily if necessary.

       I can't push him up and down the street without picturing Salt-N-Pepa showing up behind us and we all break out into our best rendition of Push It. Which would help me realize my longtime dream of becoming a female rap star, if only for a minute. Also, Calvin super loves when I sing it to him, second only to Master P's Make Em Say UHH. Kid's got taste. #ooohbabybaby #calvinandhiscar #18weeks #ohlovelydaybump
