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?
