I went to a neighborhood fundraiser a few months ago and came home with this chalkboard calendar vinyl from my friend Amie at Willow Creek Signs. I knew right where I wanted to put it, but I had some qualms about putting the vinyl directly on the wall. Now, I know that vinyl doesn't damage your walls, but here's my biggest problem: I love to redecorate. And, the truth is, I really can't commit to something like vinyl directly on the walls. I also know that it's removable, but you can't reuse it. With all that said, I used my vinyl to create this calendar board for the sad and lonely giant wall in my laundry room:
Liquid Chalk Markers, but I can't really justify spending more on the markers than on the board itself. I can't find these sold as individual markers online or in retail stores at all. Let me just say, dragging a husband, toddler, and baby around looking for these was kind of a nightmare. I tried craft stores and office supply stores with no luck. However, I happened upon a suitable alternative for the time being (until I can get a set of Liquid Chalk markers for my birthday or Christmas) at Shopko, of all places.
Velvet Slipper by Olympic. It looks a little bit dustier in real life versus the color on their website. I think my husband is ready for another painting experience. . .
