DYI Project for Kids Room

Any one with children know, they write on paper, coloring books, and yes are walls. So why not do their room in a paint that lets them, over and over again. Their happy, and your happy, what more can you ask for.

The paint is easy to apply, so let the kiddies give you a hand. The paint lets you use dry erase, or chalk. You can even make a square of this paint on your kitchen wall to use for your to do list, or grocery shopping list. The best part of these paints, you need no primer, and you don't have to remove prior paint. The paint comes in different colors, and you can create great designs. Just make sure to follow all the instructions on the can.

When you are ready to start, get all your supplies ready. Then choose the wall you want to be able to right on. Then wipe your wall down with a damp cloth. This will remove any dust or dirt. When you are finished wiping with the damp cloth, dry with a cloth.

Begin your painting with applying with a roller. Making sure you cover completely. It's best to pick a wall that can be used fully to write on, so no one gets confused. It is also recommended to do two coats, to ensure coverage.

All the paint to completely dry overnight before writing on it. If possible two nights are even better.

After the wall is dry you can start writing, if you are using dry erase you can use a damp cloth to remove the writing. Do not use permanent markers, these can not be removed.
