Art for All

Little ones are going to draw on the walls anyway—chalkboard paint provides a strategically placed space for them to dream in color. 

However, kids shouldn’t be the only ones to get in touch with their inner artists. Shelves painted with chalkboard paint presents a cool way to label items with hand-drawn illustrations – think a leaf for herbs or an apple for fruits. Empty decorative frames open an invitation for guests to fill in doodles, anecdotes, or words of inspiration–all with artistic flourish. 

And with ben Chalkboard paint available in smaller quart sizes, you can easily experiment in a range of colors.
