i’m a huge, huge fan of chalkboard paint. i use a framed chalkboard in my entryway, created a diy chalkboard project for my old craft mag column, and love to post chalkboard-related reader projects. so i was thrilled to hear from d*s reader and blogger/stylist raina kattelson about her successful testing of hudson paint’s new colored chalkboard paint.
based in red hook new york, hudson paint is run by decorative painter arno cornillion. arno explains that, “it started with a client asking for an orange chalkboard, which i was surprised to find didn’t already exist.” so arno set out to produce a line of colored chalkboard paint, which is now mixed by a family-owned paint manufacturer in the hudson valley.
hudson paint’s colored chalkboard paint comes in 24 colors and sells for $25 a can. the possibilities are endless and i was excited to see raina test out so many ideas in her home. it’s always great to find a new product, but it’s even better to see it in use in someone’s actual home. click here to read more about raina’s projects and here to check out (and order) hudson paint’s colored chalkboard paint.
