Treat Painted Surfaces With Chalk

Prepare dresser for writing by covering surfaces with a large chalk stick on its side. Tip: This step prevents any future chalk phrases from being "burned" into the surface and allows markings to be fully erasable.

Wipe Clean

Rub chalk into painted surface then wipe away with towel.

Label Drawers

Help kids stay organized by labeling each drawer. Alternately, you can add a favorite quote or saying or allow kids to add their own chalk artwork.
