Chalkboard paint - the writing's on the wall

Chalkboard paint - the writing's on the wall

If your kids won't stop drawing on the walls, or you harbour latent talents as a mural artist, why not turn your house into a wipe-clean canvas... And we're not talking black walls, because you can buy low to no VOC chalkboard paint in every colour under the sun

A novel idea for a splash back

Don't get stressed about mess...arm everyone in your house with a stick of chalk and start communicating in words and pictures. Benjamin Moore and Ecos Organic Paints have some great ideas for using chalkboard paint in the for thought indeed

If fingerprints on walls drive you nuts, a better solution than making everyone wear gloves is to paint your walls in chalkboard paint.

Which used to mean black, but no longer... you can find every colour under the sun in Benjamin Moore's range -  though it could be a problem guessing which wall is the chalkboard one if you don't paint all your walls in it.

You can also find chalkboard paints in vibrant colours at Ecos Organic Paints (part of Lakeland Paints), B&Q, while in the US popular brand Lullaby Paints has a great array of colours and its paints are the name suggests..specifically aimed at children's rooms.

Ecos Organic Paints and Benjamin Moore paints are VOC, solvent and toxin-free, so are popular with parents concerned about off-gassing (from the paint not the child..)
