I know some of my friends have chalk boards painted that you can still see words faintly in the background...I just thought they were horrid at cleaning off their boards! ha ha

This is a great use for a pocket door. I just love the idea of a door that hides away. I would love to see your studio set up. I make silver jewelery and have been banished to the garage. I have an raised insulated floor (we live in Canada) to help deal with the cold months, but partitions are what I really need to deal with drafts. If you can post pics of your set up that would be great. Keep creating and making notes on that door! Grin

I've actually always hated pocket doors, but I think that's an awesome use for one!
I'd never heard of seasoning chalkboard paint, but it makes sense.

      If you decide to frame the chalk board you willl need to keep it thin so it slides away into the pocket. There is balsa wood trim that is used in doll houses and other crafts in Joanne's and Micheal's. If that is too thick you could try framing it with ribbon, but if that is still too thick, try using some of the scrapbook stickers to frame it. I've seen some nice things in that area in gold silver and black. Good luck.

Actually I have some really cool looking wallpaper border that I was thinking of using for the frame.

I seasoned it today.  Tomorrow I'll grab another pic.

I think wallpaper would look cool. How did the seasoning work out?

Not as well as I had hoped.  I wrote on it and then erased it right away.  then I wrote on it again.  You can still see the shadow from the first writing. 


I'm wondering if it's because this is actually washable paint.  I washed it off and it looks fine.

You could just touch it up periodically...I think it is wonderful and useful and I think you can leave it or embellish it and it will only get better!  Thanks for posting this project...it was interesting and fun!

nice use of the  pocket door. 

a note on the writing still showing after erasinf, I am a teacher and find you will always see the last thing you wrote a little bit even on expensive boards unless a) you was the board or b) you let it get really chalky.  the thing that actually works best to erase I discovered was puffs plus tissues something to do with the lotion in it.  ( odd I know but I teach physics and need to draw a lot of vector diagrams and Numbers so need them to be clear and therefor always keep a box near the board)
