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!

Actually I think I'm going to put another coat of the chalkboard paint on it now, just for good measure.  Eventually I will add the border, just not yet.

And EKO, thanks for the advice about the Puffs.  I wonder if any other tissues with lotion will work.  Since it is washable paint, I will probably just use a wet sponge periodically.  I like things nice and clean when I'm trying to do drawings.

Great job, pinokeeo!  I used the same paint in baby.sweets4ever's playroom, but haven't introduced him to the magic that is chalk just yet.  Perhaps we'll doodle [read: see if we can keep him from eating the chalk] this weekend.

Did you end up adding another coat and eventually framing it?

I added the extra coat, but I haven't framed it yet.  I'm still pondering it.  Every time I use it I think about the border, but nothing has spoken to me yet.

The extra coat was a great idea, though.  It's a lot easier to clean off now.
