blackboard paint
Express yourself with the blackboard paint
Blogger Varpunen painted her bedroom wall with the tintable Liitu blackboard paint. No need to settle with just green or black anymore, you can get the paint in those colours you wish.

The color used was X465 from Tikkurila Feel the Color color card.

The wall was painted with full-matt Tikkurila Blackboard paint, which is easy to apply. Susanna painted the wall three times, that guarantees the best result. 

" We decided to go with a really beautiful greyish colour called Malva. It was just right - looks neutral enough compared to the white shades and wood surfaces in the room."

Painting the wall was easy and Susanna did it during the weekend. After a week of drying, it was ok to draw on the surface. 

The light shaded table goes nicely with the new wall colour.
1. CLEAN THE SURFACE

Wash the wall with Tikkurila Maalipesulla. 

2. MASK THE WALL

Mask the wall surface with painter's tape. 

3. STIR THE PAINT

Stir Liitu paint well before you use it. Use a small brush to paint the edges.

4. PAINT THE SURFACE

Apply Liitu paint twice using a paint roller. Let it try between the treatments. Remove the tape after last treatment before the paint dries. Wash the tools with water or Tikkurila Pensselipesu.
