Chalk or not to chalk?

There's usually no gray area when it comes to painting. You either love it or hate it! I happen to love it! Nothings better than slapping a coat of paint on a wall or the entire room and it feeling like a totally different place! It's cheap remodeling!
I was quite happy with the way my daughters toy room turned out! It took several days, but worth every drop of paint in my hair!

Project number 2, the chalkboard wall! I free handed the tree at the top, but I think it turned out o.k. The first week, lovin' the wall. It inspired my daughter to play school and she was diggin' it!
Week two, newness wearing off, but more than that it was getting hot pink chalk dust all over the carpet and the white base boards! Not to mention the erasers don't seem to erase the writting, just smear it around! Lesson learned on my cool mom idea! Yes, chalk in my face, but not giving up! I went strolling around Home Depot and found my savior...dry erase paint! That will now be my next weekend project! Keeping my fingers crossed!
