Chalk Markers

Remember when we added a chalk wall to our kitchen?  


The wall is super fun- the chalk dust everywhere- not so much.  I found some chalk MARKERS online  (chalkink.com) and they rock!  They write just like a pen and wipe off clean with a damp cloth- no dust!  They have different sizes and a variety of colors.  It says on their website that these are the markers Starbuck's uses on their chalkboards. 


I tried them out over the weekend and put up a Thanksgiving message.  


Cool, huh?!  I can't wait to play with them more- did you notice I ordered the traditional Christmas colors? :)

  3. I have heard you are not supposed to use chalk markers on chalkboard walls. They say it doesn't erase all the way. I'm hoping that's not the case. I have been wanting to use the markers for quite some time!

  4. I am a fan of these too. They are also great on pantry chalkboard labels because they do not brush off. I just love the chalkboard in your kitchen. Such a great place for it.

  6. Word of caution...if it is left up too long, it will not come off all the way (the color will, but what you wrote won't). I had to repaint my kitchen chalk board!! UGH!!! It only seems to happen on surfaces painted with chalkboard paint. For instance, my SL chalkboard that came with a finished surface has been fine.

  11. I use these markers all the time (I work at starbucks and do all of our sign artwork) and it is true that if you leave them on for too long that they will leave a faint outline of whatever you have drawn/written on the surface. It helps to clean it off with windex though, instead of just soap and water.

  12. Thanks for sharing! I love these! I wish they were not so pricey. I have seen something similar at Hobby Lobby.

  13. I have those same markers and use them for labeling a lot - but they do tend to leave a "stain" - I've found that nail polish remover with acetone works well to erase. Your thanksgiving message is so pretty!

  14. They are great and so much easier and less messy than chalk, well worth the extra $ over chalk. I've found window cleaner or vinager remove stubborn stains.

  15. That's so funny because I have a board in my kitchen and when you posted about yours I wondered how long you'd love it :) The dust is terrible. I too have the markers and love them!
