Chalkboard Paint Decor Style Ideas
There are three places I’ve been dreaming about coating with chalkboard paint. The first is my kitchen… the wall behind my stove and the wall where my counters/sink sits. I’d write recipes and quotes and notes to remember. The second is my daughter’s bedroom. It’s a given that kids like to draw on the walls and I know she’d be stoked with a wall just itching for her imagination to run wild all over it! The third is at my shop! I think it would be awesome to have a chalkboard wall just behind my counter… perhaps I’d draw forms to hang necklaces, announce sales & once again, when my little one’s at the shop with me, she’ll be able to help me decorate as well. A dream come true, I’d say!
Here are a few rooms that use chalkboards in ways that tickle my fancy just so!
When I was in university, I painted my closet door with black chalkboard paint and all I really remember was how TERRIBLE the paint smelled! Are there better brands/mixes to use if you’re going to be painting an entire wall?
Have you ever used chalkboard paint? Do you have any tips to share?

My niece painted the wall in their kitchen with chalkboard paint. I’ve never used it myself but I imagine the formulas have improved over the years. I have used magnetic paint on my kitchen pantry door and the smell was no worse than regular paint. I’m dying to try the whiteboard paint myself!
I have been wanting to try chalkboard paint for a long time, I just need the perfect spot to do so. This post certainly provides some unique inspiration!
Whiteboard paint! I had no idea… that’s kinda rad!
I’ve been painting little things here and there around the house and yes, it still smells a little. I’m sure it’s not as bad as it use to be…my husband actually finds the Mod Podge more offensive.
Am I weird that I kinda like the smell of Mod Podge? 🙂
Haha! Nice. And yeah, you’re a weirdo 😉 But we love ya!
i think i need some of that…only problem…the dust? does it get annoying i wonder? though i could relieve my childhood dream of clapping the erasers…
Hmm, I don’t know how dusty it would be. I suppose it would depend on how much use, and what sort of traffic the room had. Good point though. I know mine would be a dusty mess with my three year old at it all the time, but I don’t mind 🙂
I use a damp sponge to wipe ours in the kitchen, so no dust, we love it, i use the top half for lists, inspirational quotes and my little boy draws on the bottom half, he’s 20 months, he loves it. BEST thing i ever did in my kitchen!!
We make our own using grout and any paint you choose (think I found the recipe in Pinterest). We use it on anything we can get our hands on. It’s great because it works with any color. I actually decided to just buy a chalkboard appliqué for the wall. I figured it would be easier than trying to paint over the chalkboard paint if I change my mind. I love the pictures you posted!
Awesome tip, thank you for sharing that!
Ooh yes, I think I spied that recipe somewhere on Pinterest too!
Wow – that is really really cool! I’d love to have that near my work desk!
It’d make a great spot for note taking and inspiration!
My next project is painting our kitchen, and I’d like to incorporate chalkboard paint somewhere in there. I love the look of it so much!
I’ve been thinking of painting one of my kitchen walls with chalkboard paint!
That is a god idea. Every day you can change the design. I like this very much!
Thanks for checking it out!!

LOVE this idea! Super cool!
Glad you like it. 🙂
I LOVE these rooms, the blackboard walls look absolutely gorgeous.
However, you really have to be careful with chalk, anyone with asthma or other breathing difficulties/allergies can have a terrible time with the dust. (I speak from experience here!) so if you or anyone in your house suffer from that kind of thing, maybe consider using chalk-ink pens instead? Personally I think they look nicer than regular chalk, anyway.
