Ah, chalkboard paint. Let's see, where do I begin? *insert maniacal cackling here*

So I recently had the super bright idea to paint an entire wall in my kitchen with this stuff. Wait, don't judge me yet- it wasn't like I'd planned to let my kids at it with a bucket full of sidewalk chalk. No, I'd envisioned a stylish wall filled with beautifully scripted holiday menus, cheeky quotes, inspiring verses, and other adorable things. I wholly blame Pinterest for this temporary lapse in sanity.

Armed with the creative vision of Martha Stewart and the home improvement skill level of my German Shepherd, I purchased two cans of Rustoleum brand chalkboard paint and some allegedly smooth(hahahahaha) paint rollers. I taped off the edges and got to work smearing this stuff all over my wall. Two coats and a few hours later, I stood back and admired my shiny new chalkboard surface. I let it "cure" for a few days as per the package directions, and then decided to take it for a test drive.

I found a cute chalkboard drawing of a pumpkin via Google image search, and tried to replicate it on my wall. Given that I'm about as much an artist as I am a pterodactyl (which is to say, not at all, just in case there's any confusion), my pumpkin looked more like a sad, partially deflated beach ball wearing a toupee. Oops, guess I needed to practice a little more. No biggie! With the determination of a newborn foal, I grabbed my kids' chalkboard eraser and cheerily wiped at my drawing. EXCEPT IT WOULDN'T.COME.OFF. The surface was rough and difficult to erase. There was now a permanent, poorly drawn, sad-looking squash emblazoned on my kitchen wall.

I purchased this paint for a framed-in chalkboard project for my kids. Before buying this paint I had unfortunately tried the spray-paint first... bad idea. The brush-on paint is the way to go for sure. I learned a few lessons along the way, and ended up with a good board. If you follow these tips, you'll end up with something good as well. Here are the observations:

* This is probably the biggest trick of the whole thing - use a foam roller brush. Whether it be whiteboard paint, chalkboard paint, or magnetic primer. Do Not use a roller with any nap whatsoever, you don't want a textured surface. A foam roller will give you the closest thing to a smooth surface. The foam roller can be found here: Quali-Tech 612-WV6FQ Roller Lite/Rollerfoam Roller Combo-Kit

* I used a magnetic primer first, so I could apply magnetic stickers and learning toys to the surface. Keep in mind you'll need to apply several coats before you have a surface that will have enough iron to allow magnets to stick. The paint is basically a black'ish paint with tons of iron particles in the paint. It's a real chore to stir up. The magnetic primer can be found here: Rust-Oleum 247596 Magnetic Primer

* You'll need to apply several coats of the chalkboard paint with the roller. It may not say that, but in order to create a good barrier that will go for a few years, take the time and apply at least 3-4 coats. You won't have to wait long for it to dry, incorporate a fan if necessary.

* Make sure you season the chalkboard.

I like this product, and my son certainly gets a great deal of use out of his chalkboard and loves it. It's great in the kitchen for taking notes, however I do have one small criticism. You know when you buy a chalkboard and you can take the duster and effectively polish the chalkboard black with it? Well, you can't do that with this product. Certainly a duster will wipe the chalk off, but no matter how long you rub, the chalkdust will never be fully removed and the wall will have a patchy appearance, unless you take a cloth, dampen it slightly and then wipe the board down.

Consequently I wipe the board down at the end of each day, so it looks clean. Another thing, I was told that one coat of this product is all that is needed. However I applied one coat onto the prepainted drywall and following the recommended drying period, the eraseability was even less satisfactory than it is currently. I ended up applying 5 layers of coat to get the finish I was happy with.

It's a good product. but if I could get a custom chalkboard made, that would be better. Obviously that exercise and cost would far outweigh the ease of painting the wall with this stuff, so while this paint may be more convenient, be aware of the limitations of this product.

I made a chalkboard paint wall in my kitchen using this paint. An entire wall is the school kind of color green chalkboard. I get compliments on it every time someone new is in my kitchen.

I use it every day.

A few notes:
1. Sand. Then sand some more. The wall you paint needs to be extremely smooth, because chalk is difficult to erase from bumps and divots.
2 Use a good roller. The instructions provide a good nap length. Do not use a brush; this is not one of those paints that flattens out on its own.
3. Let it cure. Give it the full three days to dry, and do then cover the whole thing in chalk. We waited another three days before wiping that chalk off.
4. In order to *completely* get all of the chalk off, you will have to use a damp cloth. This was always the case for chalkboards when I was in school, so I don't see it as a problem.

I actually painted this wall for the first time about four years ago. We had to put a hole in the wall for a wiring project, and we're repainting it because I love it that much. It has held up nicely otherwise.
