Would you still call a blackboard black, if it was painted kalamata purple?
It’s time to let your imagination loose because I’m very excited to announce that Benjamin Moore Chalkboard Paint, is now available in any color!
Gone are the days where we’re limited to just traditional black. I’m happy to say that I can now create a colorful, functional chalkboard wherever I want—in one that complements my existing décor. It’s hard to contain my excitement here!
In anticipation of the big launch, we reached out to some of our favorite DIY and Craft bloggers to sample the new product and let us know what they think. Here’s some of their thoughts and great projects they came up with:
I wanted to make more of a command center using the chalkboard paint for the major parts and combining it with the chore charts for the kids (tutorial for those soon!).
I am so in love with it! The color is amazing and goes perfectly with the curtains. The paint was ridiculously easy to use and gave awesome coverage.
Honey We’re Home sampled summer nights 777. Here is an excerpt from her post DIY Kitchen Chalkboard Wall.
I’d been toying with the idea of turning this mostly-hidden wall into a chalkboard wall for awhile, and when I saw the gorgeous array of Benjamin Moore chalkboard paint colors, I decided to take the plunge. I thought it would be really fun for James (my 2 1/2 year old son) and a great place to put fun messages, menu items, or little reminders.
Smile and Wave sampled seagrove 653. Here is an excerpt from her post Closet Office Makeover.
The white cabinet I bought to use as my daughter’s wardrobe was designated as our new home office space upon arrival at our new house. However, it worked more as a dumping ground for any paper, receipt, battery, light bulb, and writing utensil brought home.
After figuring out how our new space would be used I brought in and arranged supplies accordingly. With a little more chalkboard paint on some display items everything shaped up nicely and is ready for everyone to enjoy.
This door had been in use for a few weeks to hold photos, a calendar, and project lists. It’s officially become an inspiration board that will soon be full of fall trends and found papers. The chalk holder is a vintage match stick holder that I had previously painted black (and used to store pencils) but with a little chalkboard paint on the front I can doodle away. It now holds our chalk and adds a nice touch of color.
Meg Duerkeson from Whatever Craft Weekends
Meg organizes these amazing craft weekend for groups of woman who just love to well… craft! During her most recent craft weekend they made a series of projects, one of them included using some chalkboard paint in several colors.
We painted metal trays with chalkboard paint from Benjamin Moore… and made magnets with vintage bottle caps!
DIY on the Cheap sampled champion cobalt 2061-20. Here is an excerpt from her post Kids Colored Chalkboard Table.
I was recently given the opportunity to try out some new colored chalkboard paint by Benjamin Moore, and I thought it would be the perfect chance to fix up my boys’ little table that had peeled from the heat and needed to be refinished.
So far, it’s been a big hit with the kids! Who needs paper when you can just draw directly on the table? There are so many fun options for this paint. Since it comes in so many colors, you could paint the walls and have it blend in with your decor perfectly. I know my boys are going to have so much fun with this table!
From a reusable, eco-friendly list maker to a drawing surface, wall calendar, or child’s activity table, these bloggers had some creative ways to use chalkboard paint and they used pretty fun color!
If you had some chalkboard paint what color would you choose?
