When I volunteered to help with my granddaughter's homeschooling this year, I knew that I needed to create a space that allowed us to focus and work with the least amount of distractions.
I knew that the room at the top of our stairs would be perfect. After rearranging the furniture a bit, I painted one wall with Rustoleum Chalkboard Paint in coffee. It took about three coats and had to cure for three days.
Then I chalked the whole wall (according to the instructions) using sidewalk chalk That did not take as long as I thought it would, but it sure made a mess. Now I use Prang Hygieia Chalk because it is not nearly as dusty. Every now and then, I wash down the whole wall using a flat mop.
We absolutely love our space.
