Fun Paints For Kid’s Rooms




Have you seen this stuff yet? Chalk Board Paint has been around for awhile, but Magnetic Paint and Dry Erase Paint! Why could they not have all these cool things when my kids were little? We are still thinking about doing the magnetic paint. The girls tend to keep my fridge covered in their things. When they found out that I was going to write about these paints today they went nuts. They want to have their own area that is magnetic. Then they can hang up all kinds of things of their own and there will be no problems when they want to change what they have up.

When I was young I would put thumb tacks into the walls and use that putty stuff to hang things. The putty always left grease marks on the things that were hanging up and on the walls. The thumb tacks would drive my mom nuts. Now that I am a mom I know all about not wanting holes in the walls.

These products are so neat!!! You can either make something and then paint it with any one of these paints or just paint a wall or door. How neat would it be if you painted a closet door with this stuff? Sliding closet doors tend to take up a large part of a room. That area can not be decorated normally. You are stuck with just closet doors to look at. What if you could take that and use that big space to be creative?

I have seen a little girl’s room that had a chalk board painted right onto the wall and then a pretty border of flowers was stenciled around it. The magnetic paint can be painted on a wall and then painted over. Then no one would even know it was there. I just think these paints are incredible. What a great way to help your kids get creative and make their room their own. The best part is that they can change it anytime they decide to. You are no longer having to redecorate a whole room when they grow out of things like Barney or Dora.

    These are great paints. It’s too late for my daughter’s room! She has already added her “artwork” to the walls but I think I may get it for my son’s room. He’s 17 months and he is starting to follow his sisters writing on the walls habit :)

    I did not know about the magnetic paint. Hubby had made Hunter a toy box and I wanted to put some kind of metal on the front for magnetic fun, and had not really found what I was looking for. This could be the answer. Thanks for the info!!!

    This is a great idea! My dad used the chalk board paint on an upstairs wall for us kids to use. It was really neat! My best friend was very impressed with it too.

    That’s awesome. We’re redoing my daughter’s room right now and this would be a great touch!

    By the way, I really enjoy reading your blog every day as I’m dropping cards. A lot of your posts are very motivational for me! So I have an award for you over at my place:

    Magnetic paint? Cool! We were thinking of chalkboard paint, but this sounds even better. Thanks for the information!

    I love chalkboard paint. The thing I hated most when we lost our house was losing the four doors I had painted in it. I could keep my son entertained for hours. It was also just a great message board for me and my wife.

    Instead of magnetic paint I actually prefer to use thin sheet metal. heavy magnets and low strength magnets often times have trouble with the magnetic paint. A sheet of thin steel can also be had at a fraction of the cost and spray painted any color too. It also has the benefit of not being a permanent fixture.
