My name is lamademoisell_ and I’m going to explain how to turn your wall into a Blackboard with Colorantic… Another chalk wall? Oh yes! These are the exact words my spouse said. I’m a big fan of chalkboard walls. It’s practical, unique and you can write whatever you want according to your mood. I already have 3 under my belt: in the children’s playroom, at my bakery and now in my garage.

Here are the steps to follow to turn any wall into a Blackboard…

List of products used

  • Colorantic Cleaner and Varnish Remover
  • 1 gallon of Colorantic chalkboard paint
  • 1 Colorantic sanding block
  • 1 set of our red cabaret with 1 paint handle and 2 Colorantic velvet foam rollers
  • Colorantic Chalk Markers
  • Colorantic eraser
  • 1 dry cloth 1 wet cloth
  • Colorantic adhesive green tape
  • Colorantic Synthetic Angled Brush

How to do it? 

First, be sure to thoroughly clean your surface to be painted. To do this, use our Colorantic Cleaner and Varnish Remover. If necessary, rub a little with our sanding block.

Then you can determine the measurements of your chalk wall with the green tape.

To start, take a Colorantic Angled Brush to cut around your chalkboard. Once done, roll the velvet foam roller all over your surface. You must repeat this step minimum 3 times for best results. Please note that our chalkboard paint is more liquid than our standard chalk-based paint.

Between each layer, allow a drying time of a minimum of 4 hours.

Very important: Be sure to sand and clean the dust with a dry cloth before applying the next coat.


After 5 long days of waiting, take a white chalk (on its full length) and pass it all over your wall so that your board is all white. Afterwards, clean the surface of your board with a damp cloth.

Finally, wait until everything is dry, about 1 hour

To finish

And now, voila! Here is my Blackboard finally ready to be used! The result is fabulous!

Turning a wall into a Blackboard is easy to do, but it’s important to follow each step correctly. The result will be great!
