I am so excited to share a new (to me) product with you. I found these chalkboard markers at Michael's. You can get more colors at their website http://www.chalkinkworldstore.com/category_s/75.htm .
I bought 2 sets, earthy colors and basic primary colors. I still need an orange and a brighter green, so I will get them online. These are the markers used by Starbuck's for their great colorful chalkboards. They don't smear like chalk, and there is no dust to contend with. They wipe right off with a little water on a paper towel.
They are fun to use. It brings out the child in you. The colors are nice and bright.
Here is my first contribution to Fall decorating.

I am in no way an artist, but I'm telling you this was fun to do. I know you all have chalkboards, I've seen them. You will want to try these. I can't wait to see what all you artists out there will do with them. Maybe a chalkboard party?

Well, Happy Fall Y'all...

Your grandson is adorable!

Thanks for sharing these great markers with us. And I love your door! I have one right next to my computer desk and I would love to do that and decorate it for the different seasons. You just used chalk paint right? I've seen a lot of tutorials.
