I like the look of chalkboard paint in homes. My favorite is the classic black, which reminds me of a French cafe menu. Did you know that chalkboard paint also comes in other colors? Check out these designers hues from Hudson Paints.
A great thing about this is there are so many neat design ideas you can create. For example, these paints function nicely as inexpensive wall art, can show off your creativity, and they are chic and graphically appealing in any home or office. What I like most about chalkboard paint, is that it’s very versatile.
Here are some examples of how fun & chic chalkboard paint really is. Let your creatively and your imagination flourish and don’t forget to have fun. Not only will it work nicely in a modern home, it would look nice in a traditional home as well. Kids will enjoy playing with the chalkboard.
