Magnetic Chalk Board Wall

Well it’s been 3 months since my last post, mostly because DIY projects while I was on maternity leave were very limited to say the least!!!!!

We did however create a magnetic chalk board wall under the stairs for Presley for her Valentine’s Day present and she is completely obsessed with it! The access is right off her play room so it was the perfect spot!

We have a bunch of wasted space under our stairs and I thought this would be the perfect spot for a little play area for her. I bought some tintable chalk board paint (tinted it navy blue but there are tons of colors to choose from, I wanted something dark so she could still use all the chalk colors). One can will get you about 100sqft.

The lady at Lowes suggested we also buy a magnetic primer to put underneath which was actually an awesome idea but one can will only get you about 16sqft and the stuff is not cheap at $20 a can so make sure you have a small wall :)
We finished the room off with a miniature fairy door installed into the drywall in between the studs, some chalk and magnet holders and of course some frozen decals and this room is her new favorite space!!!!!!!
 Not only can she write all over the wall without getting in trouble but she LOVES her farm animal magnets and we also got alphabet and number magnets so she can start practicing spelling.
She asks to play on her wall every day and if I want some quiet time this is the perfect place for her! Would highly recommend one in every home!

Client Testimonials
  • Excellent builder with quality customer service and beautiful homes! Although building a home is always stressful, and even more so when you do it from a distance as we did, the American Heritage Homes staff went above and beyond to make our home building experience memorable and as easy on us as possible (not to mention exciting)! They built us an amazing, beautiful, high quality home with everything we asked for and then some! We have been in our dream home for nearly a year now, and they have continued to provide quality customer service. When a few of our windows got drafty and granite caulking split due to the natural settling of the house, AHH was out with their contractors within a week to make everything perfect again! They have also been extremely helpful answering our questions via phone or email from the beginning (Brandi and Curtis especially). They also have a very honest and down-to-earth approach to everything, which helped to put us at ease and keep us well-informed every step of the way. We absolutely love our American Heritage Home and all of their staff!
