Which Chalkboard Paint Is The Best?

Good news, they’re almost all good. That’s because all chalkboard paint is basically made the same way. Have a look at the high ratings on all of the chalkboard paints available on Amazon.

Almost every single listing is 4.5 stars or above. That’s pretty unusual. I guess it must be hard to make a bad chalkboard paint??

You can even make your own chalkboard paint with your favorite latex or acrylic paint. Check out my easy 2-ingredient recipe in this How To Make Chalkboard Paint Using Grout post.

I almost always make my own chalkboard paint because it’s quick, easy, and I can make it in any color I need.

I made a greige chalkboard paint in this Can You Use Chalkboard Paint on Cabinet Doors post. And, a pretty dark blue for this DIY Signs on Old Cabinet Doors post.

AND, did you know they even have a CLEAR chalkboard paint that you can paint over your existing paint???

I LOVE how easy that is. You can turn anything into a chalkboard without much effort. This CLEAR CHALKBOARD paint has a 4.6 out of 5 rating. So, it must work well.

Chalk Paint Is Not Chalkboard Paint

And, just a reminder, chalk paint and chalkboard paint aren’t the same thing. The similar names can be confusing for anyone new to painting furniture and decor.

So, I wanted to make sure to point that out. You can read more tips about chalk paint in this DIY Chalk Paint Recipe post.
