I was on a hunt for a chalkboard decal that I could put on the wall next to my computer so I could make lists of the photos I needed to edit to keep everything straight.
I found this one at Michael's but even with a 50% off coupon, it was still $7 and I don't love how the chalk writes on it! And it's really hard to get it on the wall without any air bubbles!
I didn't like it in my desk area so I moved it to the broom closet door in the kitchen!
Then I remembered that any matte paint could be used for a chalkboard!
Since my wall above my desk is dark, I thought I would give it a try! Sure enough it works great.
I use a damp cloth to erase to keep it looking clean and dust free.
