Peel and stick instant chalkboard

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience wih this? Does it really come off easy? How thick is it? If I put it on a textured wall, will the bumps come through when we write on it?

I used a peel and stick dry erase board, and it came off real easily when we moved. It wasn't really re-usable after that though. I did feel the bumps through it - not sure if it would be the same for the chalkboard or not.

 

I ADORED it.

I have some. I put it on my kitchen cabinets so no texture under it. It peels off and re-sticks well I guess. (I have only removed it once)

 

I only use it for writing chore lists and notes etc. It is not very thick. I would say thickness of construction paper.

I've used a set of 4 (12" panels) for the last 4 years that I purchased from Michaels Craft Store, we've even moved it from the living room to another bedroom upstairs to use as a schoolroom blackboard.

 

I would definitely reccommend it, but ust be aware that it IS far more easily scratched than a 'real' blackboard. Also, you might want to put it on a semi-gloss wall, we have a colorful aura around ours right now from the calk being wiped off onto a matte finish wall ... it's pretty but, not necessarily something that everyone would want to put up with.

 

Oh, and the bumps will definitely come through even a moderately textured wall; if you want to test it, take two pieces of construction paper and see if you can feel the bumps.

:lurk5:

 

I've thought about putting some on my pantry door, but those doors have a woodgrain texture and probably wouldn't work. Maybe the inside of my cabinets? For favorite recipes? Since I'm too short to use it on a daily basis.

 

I hadn't thought about the erasing part. Maybe a frame around it?

Thanks for the replies. I'm bummed that it's thin, but I guess I kind of expected that. It seems that it wouldn't be good as a much-used chalkboard on a textured wall. I don't want bumps.
