Easy DIY Chalkboard Painted Bathroom Wall

Last updated on May 26, 2020

We’ve done the DIY chalkboard wall in the bathroom. It’s easier than you think. Here are the essential tips.

Re-texturing the walls, installing a new toilet, hanging a new mirror, changing the light fixture, painting the walls and cabinet base and adding a few inexpensive accessories was the bulk of the remodel.

The “how-to” paint a chalk­board wall: PRIME your wall first and then paint 2–3 coats of chalk­board paint. Read the direc­tions on the can and fol­low them exactly. TIP: allow the time needed to dry as instructed in between coats. Don’t be like me and cut cor­ners. You’ll end up re-doing it and spend­ing more money! (not stylish)

Then presto…you have a chic, home ver­sion of a pub­lic graf­fi­tied restroom! (except hope­fully yours will be stocked with tp and be clean) It’s so much fun espe­cially when you have friends over. You can add empty pic­ture frames on the wall where peo­ple can cre­ate works of art too…the ideas are end­less! Have fun putting your stamp on it

– my favorite tip: have clean wash­cloths for your guests instead of one hand towel that gets used over and over…
