Has anyone used it? Does it work well? I'm thinking of painting the lower half of one wall with it. The kids love the chalkboard wall at the doctor's office and I thought it would be fun to have at home. Plus maybe LO would stop drawing on the walls. :)

I have I love it.

I used magnetic primer and then the chalk board paint.

With the primer you have to do a lot of coats. When I first did it it didn't work to well but it seems to be getting stronger with time. You had to use like flat magnets.
The chalk board part works well. The only thing I would suggest is not putting it on a wall with carpet underneath because there will be chalk dust on the floor. Where I have it, It's wood flooring.

Good point. I bet making a little "shelf" out of trim for the chalk would help catch dust too, unless you were putting it low. (Think the tray on a school house chalkboard)

That is a great I deal! We have never tried it, all our walls are textured.
