Creating the perfect chalkboard wall

Creating a chalkboard wall for your home is easier than you think. There are a lot of different paints to choose from.

You'll need to buy a "chalk" paint of good quality. I always use the Annie Sloan chalk paints. To create the blackboard effect then the Annie Sloan black chalk paint would be perfect.

Chalk paint has been used here in a very clean way. Great for a study or children's play area but can be adapted and used anywhere. I've seen fridges painted in chalk paint and as its so robust, it can be used anywhere.

You don't necessarily have to stick with black for your chalkboard wall either, any bright colour would look good or something that would fit into your colour scheme.

Here is a great example of a navy chalkboard wall from Paper Daisy Designs, The colour looks really effective and I love the use of the white frames on the navy background.

This is a great way of using the paint to create a really contemporary look. Love the black background with the pictures on. It really makes the pictures stand out.

You can get really creative with your chalk once you're done. Or rope an artistic friend in to help you. Look at these stunning bedrooms. A chalkboard wall would look great in any room.
