Imperfect Decorating Tip of the Day: Dry Erase Paint

Finally, a solution for stressed out mothers. Instead of having our children drive us up a wall, we can have them draw us on a wall. That’s thanks to an amazing new invention — dry erase paint. (See article below.) With dry-erase paint, you can actually write on your walls and erase them. We can find so many uses for this in our own imperfect lives, including:

  • Punishing ourselves when we lose patience. We can sentence ourselves to writing, “I am a bad mother” in cursive 50 times.
  • Publishing our “honey do” lists. Nothing motivates a husband more than seeing “close the lid” on his bathroom wall.
  • Reminding ourselves about therapist appointments and pick-ups at the pharmacy. Just think of the money we’d save on missed appointment fees.
  • Implementing a motivational quote of the day to inspire our children, such as “Clean your room!” or “Tell your mother she’s amazing.”
  • Advertising our dinner and luncheon specials (Note: this only works if you cook).
  • Keeping a log of school calls (think of the paper and trees we’d save).

How could you put this valuable paint to use? Tell us.

    Chalkboard paint is awesome too. I’m thinking about a spot in my kitchen for some. I think a whole wall of either of these paints would be great for kids.

    wow, think how easy a “Decor change” would be? Sorry, I’m tired of daisies mom, now I like skulls. fine erase your pink daisies and start coloring some skulls. LOL. You’ll just have to remind them that the school walls aren’t the same!
