Have Fun In Your Home With Chalk Paint

If you are looking for ways to have some fun with your home, then you can use paint to add a creative touch to different areas of your home that give it a more unique look and that you can have a great time doing. Here are some paint projects for you to consider for different areas of your home's interior that can be done using chalk paint.

Make a chalk paint area in your child's room

Chalk paint can be a lot of fun, and you can use it in different areas of your home. It can add more functionality to some of your walls. In kid's rooms, you can paint an entire wall or even just an area of a wall with the chalk paint. Chalk paint is great because it will self-level, so you don't have to worry about brush strokes drying in it. Once the chalk paint is dry, it can be written on with chalk and erased with a chalkboard eraser.

You can use other colors of paint to make a border for the chalk-painted area. For example, you can paint a headboard above your child's bed and paint the entire center in chalk-paint. This allows your child to decorate their 'headboard' with whatever they like, erase it, and create something new whenever they want.

Use the chalk paint for memo areas

You can even paint a rooster using different colors in your kitchen (or any other farm animal) and then paint the belly area of the animal with chalk paint. This allows you to use that chalk painted area as a shopping list or memo area in the kitchen.

You can also make a mural in any area of your home, such as in the bathroom and use it as an area to leave sweet greetings and special messages for your spouse to see in the morning.

You can even paint a frame around chalk paint near your front door where you can leave reminders for the family. For example, you can write, "Did you remember your lunch?" as a reminder for the kids to see before they rush out the door to go to school.

Use the chalk paint for creative picture areas

You can put framed pictures up in the hallway and paint chalk paint under them. Then, you can write sweet thoughts about the pictures that can be changed when you want to say something different about the pictures or can be changed if you replace the current pictures with new ones.
