Chalkboard Paint Goes Beyond the Classroom

Over a year after schools across the country moved from in-person classes to virtual schooling, many students are still learning from home, and consumers continue to look for ways to make home spaces more conducive to at-home schooling. 

Chalkboard paint is an easy and cost-effective way to turn spaces into at-home learning centers. It can be applied on walls, doors and other hard surfaces or applied to smaller pieces of wood to create on-the-go chalkboards. 

Several manufacturers make brush-on chalkboard paint, such as Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Brush-On and Krylon Chalkboard Brush-On. Both Rust-Oleum and Krylon also make a spray paint version of black chalkboard paint, and Rust-Oleum offers a brush-on chalkboard paint that can be tinted to 12 colors. Americana Clear Chalkboard Coating can be applied over any existing painted surface to turn it into a chalkboard. Along with the paint itself, other products retailers can stock as add-ons include brushes, rollers and other applicators and extras like Chalk Ink Chalk Markers

Chalkboard paint can also be used to transform other spaces. Read how one retailer used chalkboard paint to create his own chalkboard stack displays and how another utilizes chalkboard paint for engaging endcaps
