My Uncle and I built this toybox for my two nieces. The top is cushioned, the bottom has wheels, and the black is chalkboard paint. The lid has a piano hinge to prevent trapped fingers and has child safety hinges that were well tested by myself. My sister loved it.

That’s really neat! So, the chalkboard paint lets them use chalk on it?

Derg, well done and nice concept. Ive never used chalk board paint but like the idea. How does that work? What kind of surface is underneath it? How many coats? Is it easy to work with? Ive thought about incorporating chalkboards into some projects for my kids.

The chalkboard paint is easy to apply. I have hardboard underneath it, and a coat of primer, but you can put it on a any flat surface. It has 2 coats of chalkboard paint. Just like real paint.

Hi, I know this is an old post but, are the piano hinges and the child safety hinges the same thing or 2 different?
