Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint Kit Review

Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint Kit-1


When we moved in to our current house it was covered top to bottom with builder’s white paint. Can you spell B-O-R-I-N-G? So not long after we settled in we decided to start painting. We picked some lovely colors in shades of green, blue, gold and beige and got right to work. Unfortunately we didn’t always choose no or low- VOC paints and the smell made me sick to my stomach. Yuck.

Recently I found out about Lullaby Paints. They carry No-VOC paints and paints that are free of a whole slew of gross toxins. The toxins they removed from their paints include things that are known asthmagens, allergens, neurotoxicants, and carcinogens. Lullaby Paints, as the name might suggest, concerned themselves with making paints that were safe for pregnant moms-to-be, newborns and even safe for kids to paint with. They have really cool colors, 38 of them to be exact, and they even were smart enough to match some of them into cute collections.

But since I don’t have any more nurseries to paint, thank God{ shh, I didn’t say that}, I was excited to try out Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint Kit. These are super cool kits that include everything you need to paint a 30 square foot area, including the Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint, roller, tray, painters tape and even some chalk to get your started.

The Project

This past Mother’s Day weekend my husband had to work so after I put the boys to bed I taped off a small area in our kitchen and started painting. We had chosen the Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint Kit in Moonstone. We felt it was a good match for our current kitchen color of light sage with silver and brown accents. The first thing I have to say about the Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint Kit is that I love the way the paint is packaged. It actually come in a pouch with a closable lid. You can easily pour the paint into the try and then just screw the cap back on the unused portion. It make using the kit so easy. I used the included roller to paint the whole area. I needed to let it dry for several hours before applying the next coat so I opted to just wait until the next day. After I finished the second coat (on Mother’s Day!) and let it dry, I rubbed some of the included chalk all over the board, per instructions, to prime it. Then it was ready for little hands to draw on. It really was that easy.

My Thoughts

I love the finished product. The color is perfect for our room, but I think if I were to do it again I would choose a slightly darker shade just to make it easier to see the chalk. Matthew has already asked it we could paint other walls in the house. We have a neighbor who painted the whole wall outside her pantry with Chalkboard paint and I think he has grand ideas of doing the same. I would make sure we choose Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint Kit if we did. There was no, zero, none, of the gross and toxic fumes that usually go with painting. I had a great experience with Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint Kit. The only other thing I would do is to add a chair rail or other border to offset the chalkboard area from the rest of the wall.

So tell me what room would you like to paint with some Lullaby Paints Chalkboard Paint?
