What a great concept - a little bit of 'old school' mixed with a little bit of new thinking. Bring back the chalk (or markers in this case)!
I am sure most of you have either seen or heard of chalk board paint (you can purchase it at Lowes or Home Depot). Let me introduce you to marker board paint! I use this product pretty often in the commercial design world but the product is being offered to the public and homeowners as well. The design possibilities are endless, whether it is used to stay organized, for to-do lists, grocery, work, kids rooms or just for fun, get creative.
The two companies that I have used are:
MDC Wall Covering
Tabrasa Idea Paint
*Note: Their paint only comes in white and cream colors
*Note: Their paint is clear and can be applied over any paint color
