DIY Chalkboard Paint Project

Lullaby Paints chalkboard paint toy box via Who doesn’t love a chalkboard? A big, blank slate to scribble and draw whatever you want….and then erase it all and start over again? Yes please!! I’ve often thought a whole chalkboard wall would be fun to have in the house, but I don’t quite have the guts to do it. Maybe some day….. But 8-year-old Liam and I recently had the chance to do a small chalkboard project together. Lullaby Paints, maker of award-winning, safe, eco-friendly paints, sent us a chalkboard paint kit to review.

Easy chalkboard toy box

Liam thought it would be cool to have a chalkboard toy box. Since we already had this wooden, rolling toy box from Ikea, we decided to give it a makeover instead of buying something new. First, we taped off the edges with the blue painter’s tape. Then we squeezed the paint into the handy, plastic tray. Liam applied the first coat of paint with the roller brush.

  1. All the colors are beautiful, but I particularly love the blush, petunia, and glacier!

  2. That’s a tough choice! I think I’d probably stick to a classic chalkboard color like Evergreen or Charred!

  3. Love the ripened pair. Such a cheerful and fresh color.
