I finally had some time this past weekend to create the November chalkboard for my kitchen.
Did you notice the bright colors? I had been hearing via blogland about a product called Chalk Markers that has the bold vibrancy of markers but the easy clean-up of chalk. I also had been looking for chalk with more of a fine tip for creating different fonts. I went to my go-to source (AMAZON.com) for a little retail research and I found these fun markers. Granted, they are a little more expensive than regular chalk at $26.77 for a package of 10, however the bold colors, chisel tip and EASY clean up was well worth the cost.
I was a little hesitant when I received them because they included a warning not to use on porous surface including chalkboard paint. WHAT?!?!? What the heck, I knew if they did not wipe off easily I could always paint my chalkboard again. Not sure what else I will do with that quart of chalkboard paint I bought when I made this board. Anyway, I am THRILLED to report that they worked perfectly. I can attest to the fact that they wipe off easily, just like chalk, with a damp cloth.
Now, if Santa is reading, they also have a set of EARTHY COLORS that would be awesome in my Christmas stocking!!
