If Chalkboard paint had been in existence in the 50’s, it most certainly would have been a trend. Recently, I was inspired by an article I found featuring Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint. The article mentioned that Rust-Oleum now features a tintable chalkboard paint. I’d been wanting to do this somewhere for my son and our kitchen seemed the obvious choice to allow for scribbled grocery lists and kids’ drawings. I was intrigued by the fact that not only could the paint be tinted to a color of my choosing, but that it was a cheap and easy project as well: 13.95 at Home Depot. I’m an instant gratification type of girl…..it’s something I must work on, but I have to say I do enjoy projects that can be done in a day!
I have to admit when I opened this, I got a little scared. I love color….but man, that paint looked pretty bright.
Another recommendation: If you’re painting a wall using the basic black chalkboard paint, use paint – not the available spray cans for better results.
