Painting chalkboard walls (and other surfaces) is still popular after several years of being in design blogs and magazines. We still like the idea of a big, writeable surface – especially for kids, offices and creative people who like to change things up.
However, if you don’t want your chalk wall to look like everyone else’s, use these tips:
- Color! – chalkboard paint no longer has to be black or green. Check out Hudson Paint for 30 fantastic colors. The playroom wall to the right is painted in Aquagirl Blue.
- Paint the whole room – rather than just painting an accent wall, why not make a whole room a chalk board? It may be bold in black, but gives the space a unifying look rather than breaking it up into pieces. See how we did it!
- Paint objects instead – give yourself more flexibility by painting moveable objects instead of walls – vases, trays, even a vintage TV screen. Check outHuffington Post for some more ideas.
