Using chalk paint on these sneakers is such a cute idea.  My kids used to use permanent marker all over theirs.  This would have given them so many more options.

Chalkboard Paint Tips from Benjamin Moore

Create a fun, functional chalkboard in any room of your home with paint that is erasable, washable, and durable enough to stand up to lots of little hands.


With products like our Studio Finishes® Chalkboard (307) paint, you can turn any rectangular area into scribble space.

Step 1 - Prepare Surfaces

Once you have selected the wall(s) for your chalkboard, clean the surface completely and repair any protruding nails or other imperfections.

Step 2 - Tape Off Your Chalkboard

Use masking tape to mark off a rectangular space for your chalkboard, and apply Studio Finishes Chalkboard (307) paint within the taped-off area.

Step 3 - Framing

Use decorative molding or a colorful painted border to give your chalkboard space an extra personal touch. Remember to include a ledge for chalk and erasers.

Helpful Hints

   * In children's rooms, be sure to make your chalkboard low and large enough so that younger children can reach and have ample space.
   * In your office or study, paint a chalkboard calendar with squares for dates. Then update your schedule with a swipe of the eraser.
   * Try a chalkboard in the kitchen for shopping lists, phone messages, and easy recipe reference.
