It's been over a year since I mentioned [here] painting one of our walls with chalkboard paint, and I'm happy to report that I finally did it! I'm not sure why I waited so long, because it was a relatively painless task. I was able to paint two coats in one afternoon, and it only took one quart of paint. The girls had a blast drawing on it for the first time, covering as much surface with chalk as possible. I contributed some doodles myself, and I have to say that I found it quite liberating to draw on a wall in our home. I can understand why kids prefer walls over paper. The whole arm is involved in the drawing process and there's a lot more space to be creative.
