There was a time when most homes used wallpaper on their walls. Today, painting is much more popular. There are a huge variety of painting techniques that keep your paint and walls from looking boring plus adding practical use. One paint product that’s gaining in popularity is chalkboard paint. Using chalkboard paint is a relatively inexpensive way to create a large chalkboard surface on a wall. Chalkboard paint is available both in spray paint and regular brush-on paint at most places that sell paint or craft supplies. For best results, several coats of chalkboard paint should be applied, and it should be allowed to dry for at least 3 days before writing or drawing on it. It can be used for a variety of fun and practical purposes.
