I would use chalkboard paint. We had some in our old house and we were able to cover a HUGE wall with it! It cleaned well too : ) They also have chalkboard "sticky" type things, we have that now in our rental -- easy to clean but a drag to put on

yeah my house is a homage to chalkboard paint, I love it but went a bit mad at christmas with it and now my friends mock me ;-) . Its great stuff. It cleans well, but tbh if it doesn't its cheap enough that you can always just paint over it.

Yeah chalkboard paint sounds great but I don't think I'm ready to paint a wall.

Check out thrift stores...I've found some great ones over the years out there!

You can make your own chalkboard paint to match too (the board or even a closet door). Matching paint = covert rental chalkboard paint. Here is how: http://pinterest.com/pin/47075023/

Wow that chalkboard on pinterest is looking pretty stylish... that site can be addictive! I never considered converting some other surface other than a wall with chalkboard paint. Maybe this could work for us. Thank you everyone for your input.
