I used a high quality foam roller to apply the chalkboard paint and applied three thin and even coats. I din't use any kind of primer and it worked perfectly.
So, I also mentioned we had an amazing magnet collection - well maybe I exaggerated a tad. For some reason in my memory it was a lot grander than it looks now.
Just a quick side by side look.
All in all, the chalkboard paint was easy and fun to do and it really works just like a chalkboard. I have to say the magnetic paint was not my favorite thing to use and the end result is not a very strong magnetic bond. You definitely have to use lighter weighing magnets and applying thin coats is essential. Transforming these doors into magnetic chalkboard fun only took $35 and a little elbow grease. Not too bad!
So how about you? Any fun transforming projects going on in your homes? Do share!
More guest room and closet fun coming at you this week!
