Chalkboard Paint —In Any Color

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:

We have a wall in our kitchen that I have always eyed for a potential chalkboard wall.

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’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.

I like that it’s kinda a secret, unexpected fun wall in our home.

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.

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 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?

  1. The demo pictures show bowls with paint on the side to write how hot the salsa is, is that posdible?!? Will it remain on the bowl once I wash it, can you use it on glass or plastic?!?!

  2. I see that the chalk paint was use on furniture, will the paint feel rough? will it need to be soft sanded? and will it do well with chalk liquid pens? Thank you for all the colors you have available, it’s wonderful to have more choices.

    • Hi Patricia, The chalkboard paint applies like any other paint, so we would recommend to sand the surface smooth and apply the chalkboard paint with a fine nap roller such as a ¼” nap or foam roller for best results. – michelle

  3. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!

  4. I didn’t see your reply to a previous question regarding the use of chalk liquid pens….. “and will it do well with chalk liquid pens?” These are quite popular now and also come in a wide variety of colors for all seasons and purposes. Thanks much – I look forward to trying several colors of your chalkboard paint.
    Oh one more question if you don’t mind – do you sell the paint in smaller containers – i.e. pints, for smaller projects? Thanks again – I look forward to your replies….
