chalkboard paint

I’m currently flirting with the idea of painting a wall in my kitchen or office with chalkboard paint. You know, a giant notepad/calendar/message center where people will write inappropriateness that I’ll discover at the most inopportune times.

I’m thinking black but you can customize the paint color like they did here. Black paint available here.

p.s. where was chalkboard paint when I was a mischievous four year old who loved to draw on the grand room walls?

  1. I love chalkboard paint! My drama teacher painted his classroom walls with it and it’s the coolest thing ever – I’d paint a wall of my room with it but I don’t have the time. πŸ™

  2. Tempting for sure but I keep hearing that it sounds like a better idea than it actually is.. apparently it always ends up looking kind of gross.

  3. i love that idea! i will definitely make a wall or part of a wall in my house a chalkboard paint!

    here’s an idea: put a frame on the wall with no picture in it, and instead of a picture, it’s the chalkboard paint!

  4. This is great! I am actually working on something similar. Instead of painting an entire wall, I am in the process of shopping for an antique picture frame. I will then cut a sheet metal the size of the frame to be placed inside as a picture. Paint the sheet metal with black chalkboard and voila…an appealing magnetic chalkboard that can be placed anywhere in the house πŸ™‚
    I hope it turns out as I plan.

  5. That’s a cool idea, but having a chalkboard like that in your kitchen the dust would get all over your counter-tops and probably into the food you would be preparing over the stove…

  6. This is pretty neat! Never seen anything like it. But I don’t think I’d like a whole wall of chalkboard art. Maybe a strip of a wall.. OU! Or strips of chalkboard from floor to ceiling.. Interesting! Haha, great post πŸ™‚
