Chalkboard, Magnetic & Dry Erase Paint

I have been amazed with chalkboard paint ever since I first heard about it and tried it. But I recently came across more amazing options for kids’ walls. There’s a magnetic paint, dry erase paint and even glow in the dark paint!

These I found are made by RustOleum and can be found at most home stores or paint stores. One of their newest products is a Chalkboard Tint Base which allows you to choose from 12 colors including Fresco Red, Peapod and Grape Fizz to name a few.

Check out this creative wall mural using chalkboard paint ( I recently saw another picture in a magazine that had large chalkboard rectangles painted around the room. Each had a whimsical, white frame painted around the chalkboard. It looked so real and gave a sophisticated touch to a “chalkboard” in a little girl’s playroom.

    I love the idea of chalkboard paint! I wonder how difficult it is to strip it off the wall later???

    Bridget, good question about how to paint over it. Looks like people are saying to use a GOOD PRIMER and then you can paint right over it like other paint. Check out this link here.

  3. I hope I’ll have a house someday soon so I can use this paint!

    We looked at a house recently that we were thinking about buying and it had one wall that was painted with chalkboard paint. I thought it was cute but the realtor (a friend) said that more than one family seemed to be very turned off by it. I like it in the tree shape better than an entire wall.
