If you like blackboard paint but not quite ready to drastically apply it all over your walls, you might consider the IdeaPaint. It offers a similar concept and much more predictable color scheme. This paint turns any wall into a dry-erase surface, allowing you to communicate messages, pin down ideas and generate volumes of marker art. With several colors available, the IdeaPaint may be used in any room – kitchen, home office, entrance area… It will definitely be a hit in a kids room! The application is as easy as painting the walls.

This is pretty cool, but blackboard paint comes in multiple colors, too. http://www.hudsonpaint.com/chalkboard-paint-colors/ has 30 colors, several of which I’d actually be willing to use, unlike the majority of the (comparatively very few) colors I saw on IdeaPaint’s site.

Of course, there are also at least two ways (that I know of) to make your own paint using tile grout, so you can turn any paint color into chalkboard paint.

Personally, I’ve seen too many dry-erase boards get grotty over the years to really like them as walls. The main thing they have over chalk, IMO, is the more vibrant colors of markers.
