I stumbled upon this awesome dry erase paint when I was buying spray paint…and I was itching to try it!
So I did. Mostly….because I had a perfect spot. Daughter’s desk (see it here)
She is 8. Enough said right??? I mean…After I cleared off about 1000 tiny pieces of nonsensical items only 8 years old would think to keep. I found this scribble.
I didn’t know it came in two parts that you had to mix together…and then you only have an hour to apply. It’s quite a bit of paint and since there are different sizes it’s kind of hard to mix only half. (IE…I had a ton of paint leftover. I even did my daughters other dresser and both sides of the desk and the her window seat and a few blank walls.
But other than that fact…it’s pretty easy. Just mix both pieces and apply.
I did two coats (since the dresser was already white. (which I totally would recommend painting whatever surface white before you start since it’s pretty thin paint) AND once it dries it is really shiny just like a normal dry erase board.
THEN you have to wait 3 days. 3 looooonnnnnggggg days.
But then…it’s time for some fun!!!
calendar, messages, quotes, notes….so much fun! It wipes up pretty good. We use a magic eraser to erase…. full disclosure…If you let it sit for awhile…it does take a little bit of elbow grease to get it off. and the smoother the surface the better. Our textured wall was not the greatest!!!
Anyways…it’s turned out super fun and perfect for an 8 year old!
make sure to grab these fun dry erase markers!
