    Default Two year old - pencil - wall board

    My darling little two year old discovered that the wall is a great place to draw. I have quite a master-piece in the hall way. My wife doesn't like it and wants to remove it. Any
    suggestion? A regular eraser isn't cutting it.

    Try WD-40 do-all in an inconspicuous spot to remove crayon, pen, marker, etc...

    Dave,

    There's a product called "Goof Off" (honest!). It'll take off pretty much anything, (but may remove the paint.) It's available at hardware stores and probably in Walmart near the paint and solvents.

    Or you could hang an empty picture frame around it for a "clever decorator accent!" [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Citrasolve is the very best I have ever used for taking markers off of anything, even carpet.

    Depends on the condition of your paint. We are in a new construction home and my two year olds have added original artwork to the mix also. Trouble is that the paint that was used is quite 'chalky' (the builder got cheap on us at the end). Any attempt to remove takes it right down to the wallboard surface so you get a gray area.

    We have resolved to repaint next year when discipline can be more readiy and understandably enforced. (At least until the teens arrive).
